Creating Layers: Resist Techniques and Fiber Reactive Dyes

Learn resist techniques to create layers of color and design with fiber reactive dyes.

Students will be making samples in different fabrics to understand how these resists work and how to directly apply thickened dye with these resists, using stamps, thermofax screens and brushes.

Students will walk away with a samples binder for future reference.*
