Folds For Clamp-Dye Resist
3day workshop // 3-daagse workshop o.l.v. Elin Noble (USA)

This class is an in depth exploration of how the different folds, and the location, shape, and size of the wood boards, influence the overall pattern. We will use Procion MX fiber reactive dyes on cellulose fibers (cotton, rayon, Tencel, hemp and linen) as well as silk. We will cover the basics: learn why the different products are used and when to use them. We will also talk about safety, color mixing, fabric selection and preparation.
