In this intense two day workshop you will learn Percentage Dyeing, a precise method of dyeing fabric that produces consistent, reproducible colors on any amount of fabric. This workshop is for anyone that already knows how to dye fabric but wants to gain more control over their use of dye. Percentage Dyeing is a system of dyeing in which the weight of dye used is proportional to the weight of fabric. It can be an intimidating skill to learn, but is also a valuable tool to have in your skill set. I will break down the system into easy to understand steps. By the end of the workshop you will be able to confidently match any color with dye and scale up or down your recipes as needed. In this workshop we will be using Procion Fiber Reactive MX dye - a wash-fast and light-fast dye that is suitable for all types of plant based fabrics and silk
