Create Patterns on Wool & Silk with Acid Dyes

Date: June 22 – 26, 2012 (5 Days)

Instructor: Carol LeBaron

Level: Beginner and Beyond

Class Description: Come create patterns with both surface and immersion techniques on wool and silk. Beginners will learn the fundamentals of dyeing and printing protein fibers, while advanced students will have a chance to push the boundaries of the medium  We will work with purchased wool fabric, wool fiber, silks and found fabrics from your stash, and, if possible, simple open plain weave fabrics that you may prepare ahead if you are a weaver. You will leave with simple finished piece or a bag full of beautiful sample explorations. Some experience helpful but not required; advanced/returning students can explore all techniques further.
