We had another wonderful fabric dyeing workshop this past weekend. The weather was stunning and my lovely new friends, Louise, Gill and Sue, made beautiful pieces.
We spent two days ice-dyeing and eco-dyeing. Day one is spent setting everything up. We folded our fabrics, set up our ice buckets, gathered leaves for eco-dyeing and bundled up our silk packets to steam.
Day two is all about the reveal! First we unpacked our ice buckets. Look at these marvellous results:
While the ice-dye pieces were drying, we opened our steamed eco-dye packets. Opening eco-dye is always a wonder!
After drying and ironing, everything goes up on the design wall for all to admire:
And thanks to my good friend, Sarah, we were all fortified throughout the day with delicious food!
My next workshop will be the weekend of February 10-11, 2018. We will be ice-dyeing, bleaching and sun-dyeing. Here’s a quick peek at what you could be doing in February!
