What's Included

Instructor: Joey Casey In this class, student of all levels will gain confidence using fiber reactive dyes (Procion), with all the color options they have to offer. Students will learn a variety of dyeing techniques such as immersion dyeing, direct application, tie-dye, hand painting, and basics on dyes, chemicals, and additives while focusing on how to mix and blend colors to get your desired effects. All techniques will be learned through fun projects that students can take home with them. Procion dyes are amongst the more eco-friendly of all the synthetic dyes. Plus they also have the best light- and wash-fastness. They're super versatile and can be used with a variety of fibers, such as cotton, linen, rayon, and silk. -- All materials for sample making and learning the technique are included. Any additional materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision. This class doesn't include access to free Open Studio. The Morning Series are short in-depth classes, focused on techniques and projects that students can easily continue exploring on their own, at their home (studio).

Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
