Try out several different fabric dyeing techniques on fat quarters of quilt fabric including: painting gradations, shibori style wrapping, binding and clamping, layering colors like a parfait, solid and mottled color baths and painting patterns. Discover how easy it is to create your own batik-look fabrics too. All dyes are colorfast. Go home with a stack of one-of-a-kind fabrics and all the information you need to create more. All materials except fabric included in the $60 cost of this workshop.
