Dip and Dye Silk Scarves

Presented by Textiles West at TWIL at the Manitou Art Center

Discover quick and fun dyeing using acid dyes and silk scarf blanks. In this introductory workshop you will create multiple silk scarves and fabric samples.

Learn some basic shibori folding and wrapping techniques to create beautiful patterns. Into the dye pot they go, and there the magic happens. No experience is necessary.

All you need to bring isĀ an experimental attitude and wear dye appropriate clothing.

These classes will introduce you to a new skill, concept or technique and are open to all levels. The student may, however, be required to have a basic skill or have taken a certification class.

For example, for a flat-pattern drafting class one need not know anything about flat-pattern drafting but should have a basic understanding of the sewing machine.

Any prerequisites will be listed in the class description.
