using Japanese fabric dyeing techniques
with Textile Artist Amber Dawn Coppings

When: June 27, 1pm-5pm
Where: Pittsburgh Center for the Arts
$50 for non-memebers/$45 for PCC members
All dyes, chemicals and preparation materials included in tuition fee.
Dye kits to use at home and silk scarves will also be available for an extra fee.

Why buy new clothes when you can revamp them? Save money and reinvent your wardrobe by dyeing your clothes using Japanese Shibori fabric dyeing methods.
Sewn Nui shibori and Folded Itajime shibori will be explored along with immersion, gradation and over-dyeing techniques. Shibori is a general term for hundreds of different traditional and contemporary fabric dyeing techniques that originated in communities in Japan. Imagine tie dye with geometric shapes, interesting details and a lot of innovation!

You choose which methods to use on your clothing. Low impact, eco-friendly fiber reactive dyes will be used with many colors available. Some color theory will be discussed to help you figure out the best colors to dye your clothes. Let me know any special color requests when you register- some can be accommodated.
