Students will learn to use Lanaset (acid) dyes to permanently color commercially woven silk cloth. Immersion (fold, clamp, resist) and surface design (mask, stencil, stamp) techniques will be sampled. Emphasis is on the process rather than a particular product, with an intuitive, nontechnical approach. Information will be shared via discussion and handouts so students may continue to work at home.

Level: All levels

Materials Fee:  $40 for Lanaset (acid) dyes, vinegar, sodium alginate, synthrapol, vinyl gloves. A selection of silk fabrics: 2 fat quarters very light weight, at least one fat quarter mid weight, 2 fat quarters noil, 2 scarf blanks. Handouts. Access to Neal's surface design tool/toy box (clamps, stencils, stamps, brushes, etc.)

Registration: Members $100, Non-members $120

Instructor: Neal Howard
