Surface Design 101: Learn how to hand-paint scarves + decor

  • Mendocino Arts Center 45200 Little Lake Street Mendocino, CA, 95460 United States (map)

Students will learn a handful of direct application dye techniques using non-toxic fiber reactive Procion dyes. We will explore various fibers in this workshop, including an oversized square bamboo scarf, a silk scarf, large linen squares that can be made into pillows or used for furushiki, and a set of cotton napkins. Participants are encouraged to bring 7-10 projects from home they wish to transform during this workshop. Natural fibers only, i.e. cotton, linen, hemp, rayon, bamboo, tencel, or silk. Feel free to take a zero waste approach to this and bring pieces from home that are stained that you wish to transform. Feel free to bring pillowcases, yardage, onesies, and items to make into holiday gifts.
