This introductory course provides you with the opportunity to try out a range of textile techniques. You will learn the basics of tray dyeing, indigo shibori, cyanotypes and eco-printing and will be able to create a range of reference sample fabrics. The course is designed to give students hands-on practical experience in a range of textile processes which could then be used in their own creative textile/fashion work.
This course is for anyone with an interest in Textiles who would like to explore fabric dyeing processes. Equipment and dyes will be provided during the course, students will need to provide their own 100% cotton and silk fabric and medium/heavyweight watercolour paper.
