Yesterday I spent the day Procion Dyeing at a Kate Andre workshop and if you want to know all about procion dyeing it is a workshop to be recommended.
We started off with ice dyeing and then moved on using diffeent techniques to learn the different ways the dye works.
With the liquid procion we dyed on dry and wet fabric, did a colour run, tie dye and cramming in a jar – all giving varied results
We then moved on to experiment with procion dye thickened with manutex. This gives a jelly like medium which can be applied directly to the fabric or used to create a thermofax image
The wading birds below were created using a Thermofax screen purchased at Kate’s workshop and opaque Pebeo paint
A great day ….and I am already busy preparing fabric to experiment further!
