Colouring fabric with dyes.



This 1 to 1 day course is for anyone who has a love of colouring fabric! I will show you how to dip dye, paint and print with dyes onto natural fabrics. We will use stencils to create rich vibrant designs using either your own drawings for inspiration or ideas from my collection and my garden. You will have the opportunity to make a photographic screen to incorporate into your work.
The process of working with dyes is one that I use in most of my work, I find that once the fabric and dye has been fixed it leaves no 'handle' in the fabric and it's extremely hard wearing and lightfast.

I have been teaching textiles and screen-printing for many years and have lots of knowledge I'd like to pass on to others.
If you are in Devon on holiday Crediton is situated midway between the North and South coasts and a perfect place to explore the whole county from. I can also provide accommodation if you would like to stay for longer.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

I will provide a metre of fabric and you will have access to over 20 different dyes. All papers and screens are included.

Any extra costs will be for other fabrics you might like to try.
