I am pleased to share that in Spring 2014 I will be renting the dye studio at Wabi Sabi in Ottawa to offer my five-day Dye Happy workshop. It will run on Fridays, with all dates listed below:
This workshop hasn’t been offered in Ottawa since 2010. It ran this past fall at the Haliburton School of the Arts (under the name Dyeing to Quilt). Please visit my blog to see lots of photos of the work produced in this class. http://www.elainequehl.blogspot.ca/2013/10/dyeing-to-quilt.html
Wabi Sabi is the perfect location to teach this workshop because they have a proper dye studio. Class will be limited to 8 students due to studio size and to provide a more intimate and individualized learning experience.
Day 1: Low-Water Immersion and Parfait Dyeing
Day 2: (Shibori) Pole Wrapping, Folding, Clamping
Day 3: Flour Paste Resist
Day 4: Soy Wax Batik
Day 5: Painting with thickened dyes
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information, and to obtain a registration form, class outline and supply list.
Here are photos of the kinds of things you can expect to create.
COME AND DYE HAPPY!
