Fabric Dyeing Art Workshop

Fabric Dyeing Art Workshop 
Led by Artists Mike McManus
Tuesday, July 25 | 6:30 – 8:30 PM 
14Y Member $15, Non-member $25 

Registration closes Friday, July 21

Local artist Mike McManus will lead workshop participants in fabric and paper dyeing experiments as an artful act of releasing control. Colors and materials will be paired to create patterns, shapes and forms in dyeing baths and dry applications.

Participants will be introduced to multiple forms of dye including synthetic and natural dye. Fabrics will be immersed in fabric dye baths and participants will learn how to manipulate the fabric to form unique patterns with different resist techniques.

IMPORTANT: Participants should bring their own white or light-colored fabric to dye, such as t-shirts, canvas, scarves, or bandanas. Natural fabrics are best for dyeing, such as cotton, linen, and cotton blends.
