Fabric Painting and Dyeing Workshop

There’s more than RIT® when dyeing fabric for the theatre.  This hands-on workshop covers the principals of dye chemistry, mixing, color theory, fiber identification and safe lab techniques.  Students create color wheels with fiber reactive dye on cotton and silk fabric using three primary colors.  Other projects include direct application of dye to fabric, stencil and silk screen techniques, arashi shibori techniques, acid dyeing techniques, steam setting and finishing.
