Fabric Painting with Fiber Reactive Dyes

Getting there
4610 MAGAZINE ST., New Orleans, LA

In this workshop you will embrace the imperfection of the human hand to create uniquely bold and captivating designs on fabric. Using Procion MX dyes and sodium alginate as a base thickener, you will learn how to create your own boldly colored dye paste. Using this paste and a variety of painting tools, you will be free to experiment with several different design ideas. You will learn from start to finish how to prepare the paste and fabric and how to set the dye once you are finished painting. Each participant will take home several yards of beautifully decorated fabric that can be turned into clothing, wall hangings, quilts and more! The workshop includes yards of ready to dye cotton fabrics (poplin and gauze) and yards of rayon as well as all supplies and equipment needed to mix the dye solution.
