This weekend some of my students came to my home studio to have a bit of a messy time. Graded dyeing, silk painting and batik were among some of the techniques we explored.
My husband had bought me a wax pot for my birthday and this was the perfect opportunity to try it out
Lots of wonderful experimenting going on
Transfer paints with a stitched resist. I love the mottled background.
Bleach effects on hand dyed fabric and velvet.
Silk painting and salt effects
Folded and pegged fabric it looks like a tiled floor. I am very pleased with this one.
Tray dyeing before rinsing out. The colours will be paler when it is dried.
Stacks of dyed fabric to take home.
Jenny's silk painting
I am looking forward to our next lesson to see how the dyed fabric has turned out.
