Description - You LOVE all those beautiful colors in fabric. Right?? Do you see dazzling bright hues, soft, gentle pastels, warm-the-heart earth tones? Want to make your own? Join me and I will show you how. We will have such a blast making beautiful artistic fabric together (party included at no extra charge.)
Needed Items - WEAR OLD CLOTHES AND SHOES !!!!
... UNLESS YOU WANT TO GO FOR WHATEVER MIGHT SPLASH TO LIFE.......
PFD* (Prepared for Dyeing) fabric. Up to 3 yards * PFD explained below
Rubber or latex-type gloves
Quart-size or larger zipper plastic bags
A couple of plastic grocery bags might be needed for carrying fabric after class. You have to wait at least 4 hrs. after some techniques to rinse.
*PFD Prepared for dying: no sizing, finishing, etc.
PFD fabric can be purchased on-line (just search for the same). If purchased, no other prep is necessary.
*Or if you want to use your own, these are the requirements:
Natural fiber material: cotton, linen. bamboo, hemp, rayon (not natural. but made with natural materials).
Wash fabric in HOT water with Synthropol, if available, or other mild detergent like Dreft, to remove any sizing or other chemical treatments. Not quite as good as PFD, to my thought, but absolutely dyeable.
