Summer time – and time for ice-dyeing

 

Next month, actually it’s almost next year already, I will be having the first of my ice-dyeing classes.  This type of dyeing doesn’t need to be only in summer, I have had some wonderful results in mid-winter, like this one –

After washing this gorgeous piece of fabric, it became my Angel Wings quilt.

Dates for my classes are weekends 7-8 January, 14-15 January, and 21-22 January.

So if you would like to create your own piece of fabric, and would like to participate in any of these classes, then  send me an email  –  dombros2 at bigpond dot com , with the date you prefer and I’ll get back to you with the details.

Day 1 will be the ice-dyeing, day 2 will be the rinsing and reveal of your fabric, followed by another technique using Procion dyes or Indigo. A fun weekend.

Here is a sample of the different designs you can produce, “It’s all in the folding”.

 

Thank you for reading this far, I hope you all have a happy Christmas and New Year.

Till next time 🙂

 

Indigo Dyeing

The first class for 2016 will be a repeat of the Indigo Dyeing class.  Next Saturday 9 January, 9.30 to 4pm-ish.  We don’t need to worry about the weather as the roof is over the deck at last, working outside is so much better now than it was.

Email me for a list of requirements.

If you have done this workshop before, you will know the procedure, so you can have your fabrics already prepared – stitched, tied, banded, clamped etc.

Remember you can use any fabric for this type of dyeing.

Here are a couple of samples from previous times.

Summer time is a great time for indigo.

If you’re interested, please leave a comment and I’ll get back to you with more details.

Cheers, keep smiling.  🙂
