About the event

Level: Beginner to Intermediate

What’s Ice Dyeing all about? All Fiber Reactive dyes need just three things.

 First, the fabric,

 Second, a dye activator; soda ash which makes the dye permanent on the fabric

 Third, ice/snow to dissolve the dye and move it through the fabric.

The ice acts both as a carrier of the dye powder as it melts, but it also slows down and changes the reaction time so that the dye

reaches different parts of the fabric at different times and that’s what creates the simply delightful surprises when you unveil

your piece.

What you will learn:

 Dyes and chemicals that you will use

 Safe studio practices, how to set up your dyeing area

 Equipment such as measuring cups, colanders, etc.

 Preparing fabric for dyeing

 Folding, binding and clamping methods

 Dye color choices

 Setting up the fabric, ice/snow and the dye

 Waiting time – melting of the ice/snow

 Rinsing and washing your fabrics

We will discuss suggested products, applications, and recommended tools. Students will be provided with fabric to execute

several different samples in their own color choices.
