What's This About Color?
Hand-dyed fabrics
Saturday, July 20-August 11

 
Soy Wax Batik Workshop
Saturday, July 20, 1 pm
Free/by donation
Batik is a method of producing colored designs on textiles by dyeing them, having first applied wax to the parts to be left undyed. 
This simple technique uses natural soy wax that melts at a much lower temperature so you can't get burned...you can even do it with your kids!  In this workshop we will learn from Jennifer Glenn how to use printing methods to apply the wax and then use fabric dyes to show your design.  You will have to take your pieces home and let them "batch" and then you can wash the wax out in a really hot washing machine.  It's like magic!  All you need to bring is your wonder; see you there...
Vat-dying Workshop
Saturday, August 3, 12-2 pm
Pickup your piece Sunday, August 4, 4-6 pm
Free/by donation

Join KH Harris and Irene Tsuneta to create your own beautiful piece of vat-dyed art.  Bring a white piece of fabric that you would like to dye, but make sure it has not been washed with fabric softener.  A t-shirt, pillowcase, nightgown, handkerchief, tablecloth...the sky's the limit!
