Pot O'Gold Dyeing
Description: Color, color, and more color is just a dyepot away! Dye 24 pieces of fabric (up to 12 yards) of gorgeous muiti-hued fabric on Day 1 and explore resist techniques - folding, clamping, and pole-wrapping shibori (arashi) - on Day 2. You'll learn Carol's low-water immersion dyeing technique (which minimizes the dye and water used and reduces the time, space, and cleanup required) and you'll leave with your own rainbow of fabrics.
Carol Soderlund began dyeing fabric in 1988 when her vision of a quilt couldn't be realized with commercial fabrics. Since then, she has utilized dyeing and surface design techniques to create transparent, luminous, and dimensional effects of great subtlety in her award-winning quilts. Carol maintains an active teaching schedule throughout the United States and in Canada, teaching her color mixing techniques at ProChemical & Dye in Massachusetts and Nancy Crow’s Timber Frame Barn in Ohio and the Pacific Northwest Art School in Washington. For Carol, the ability to dye any color and an understanding of the interaction of colors opens the door to spontaneity and intuitive use of color. It is this joyful key to color she shares with her students.
