1 Day Workshop
Date: Saturday, October 2, 2021
Instructor: Elizabeth Moncrief
This is my longest-running and most popular one-day workshop because ‘who doesn’t love color!’ Whether you’re a subtle, natural-shades person or flamboyant and outrageous, we’ll satisfy your need for creativity and expression.
This workshop is open to all fiber artists and we use Reactive Dyes, which are designed for easy application on all cellulose fibers: cotton, rayon or Lyocell (which includes Tencel and bamboo), all bast fibers (linen, banana, ramie). Participants need not be weavers, but we do focus on warp painting, though non-weavers may bring in cellulose-based yarns for other purposes.
All warps or skeins must be wound and washed before the workshop and I will give instruction to all participants well before the class. It is suggested that each participant bring four to five warps or skeins as we will demonstrate and reproduce a minimum of five techniques to allow for a wide-range of fun results.
Because the curing process for this class of dyes is 20-24 hours, I will also give full instructions on handling the yarn packages the next day, including rinsing, washing and drying.
