Spend the day with Maria trying lots of different techniques for adding colour to fabric.  Perfect for anyone wanting to create their own fabric for an amazing garment, cushions, art journals or even a background for a peice of embroidery.

During the day you will have the opportunity to try the following techniques:

  • Microwave dying
  • Marbling using shaving foam
  • screen printing using thermofax screens
  • block printing
  • gelli printing
  • markal sticks and stencils

You will be able to try out all the techniques listed above and take home lots and lots of dyed and printed fabrics to use as reference for future projects or to turn into something special.  (Our up coming fabric postcards workshop is just perfect for this).

You will need to bring a couple of old white sheets or 3 metres of white cotton fabric (this must be 100% cotton to allow the dyes to set properly).  An apron and a pair of marigolds.  PLEASE MACHINE WASH any new fabrics on a hot wash before class to remove any fabric treatment.

    This was a full day of dyeing, printing, stencilling and marvelling on fabric and so interesting. I had so much fun experimenting with the different techniques! There were lots of different things to try and the results were lovely (some more intentional then others)!
