Rust Dyeing and Shibori Vat Dying

Chuck's Studio • 227 East Gregory Ave TellurideCO  81435 Organized by Ah Haa School for the Arts

About this event

Explore rust dyeing and shibori vat dyeing on found textiles. The focus will be learning shibori techniques and vat dyeing with Fiber Reactive dyes. Students will start a bin of rust dyes on day one and be able to overdye these items on days 2 & 3. Kathy has an amazing collection of rusty metal to use. Kathy and Nancy have collected and scoured lots of vintage fabric for everyone to over dye – mostly cottons, some linen, some clothes. Students can bring their own items to dye that are cotton, linen, silk or wool. Please do not bring any Jersey materials. A great class for quilters, art quilters, clothes makers – anyone who likes to sew by machine or by hand! Participants are encouraged to bring lunch and snacks and beverages – (for you and/or to share) and wear old clothes and old comfortable shoes, sun hat and sunglasses as you will be outside for the class. Participants should also have a current tetanus shot since you will be working with rusted metal. The class will be held at a private studio in the Town of Telluride; the address is shared upon registration.
