This week we finally completed the last lesson of the Assemblage Hand-Dyeing Workshop and what a journey it’s been!

During the last 10 weeks we’ve covered the basics of color theory and color mixing, then moved on to experiment with some creative hand-dyeing “assemblage-style” using techniques such as low water immersion, shibori, ice dyeing, microwave dyeing, parfait dyeing, and tray dyeing. Each technique offers different ways to blend color and create visual texture.

I’ve so enjoyed seeing all the beautiful hand-dyed fabrics and fibers that my students have been inspired to create. Each piece is uniquely beautiful in color and texture.

I will be running this workshop again in January 2018 when it will be summertime in the southern hemisphere – a perfect time for hand-dyeing outdoors. If you live in the northern hemisphere, it may be a little cold outdoors but hand-dyeing can be successfully accomplished indoors with a minimum room temperature of 70 degrees F.

You can find workshop details here on my website.
