Creating Layers: Resist Techniques and Fiber Reactive Dyes

Presented by Textiles West and Manitou Art Center at TWIL at the Manitou Art Center

In this class, students will use different mechanical resists such as corn dextrin and potato dextrin along with surface design techniques to create texture and layers. 

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.*
