Fabric workshops at the Yurts

Greetings – last call to take advantage of this opportunity to work with Jennifer Love and add wonderful colour to your life!
To register, please call (604-883-2380) or email to reserve a space for either of these workshops.

Colour Play:
Low Immersion Dyeing with Fibre Reactive Dyes
Teacher: Jennifer Love

Sat & Sun – Oct 26/27; 10am to 4pm
$180.00 + GST; Materials fee tba

Learn how to create your own hand-dyed fabrics using various colour combinations in fibre-reactive dyes, blending them with different proportions and techniques. The small amount of water used makes these techniques possible even in restricted circumstances – anyone can do this!

On Day 1 we will cover the technique of two-colour gradation dyeing – we’ll use large glass jars or zip-lock bags and end up with a range of 9 fabrics that all work well together.

On Day 2 we will experiment with simple methods of layering,  clamping, binding and manipulating fabric to create visually complex fabric, using wide-bottomed trays and basins. You will leave with a range of wonderful fabrics to use in your next quilt or fibre art project. No experience required.


Colour Impressions:
Procion MX Printing and Painting
Teacher: Jennifer Love

Sat & Sun – Nov 16/17; 10am to 4pm
$180.00 + GST; Materials fee tba

Jennifer will introduce you to some of the fun techniques she uses when printing and painting fabric with thickened fibre reactive dyes. Painting with squeeze bootles, printing with rollers & brushes, blockprinting, screenprinting, impression printing and more – this will be a good introduction to the many and varied methods for mark making on fabric. Some previous experience with dyes useful but not mandatory.

See you at the yurts!
