For the dyer, the many choices of dye colors available can lead to confusion and disappointment in color outcomes. This class will help you choose the pure color that will suit you in developing your own personal palette. Carol has dyed over 80 individual palettes, which she will share with you through slide presentations, discussions, and hands -on dyeing. Brilliant yellows, passionate purples, rich reds, astounding blues and soothing greens as well as necessary neutrals will be yours to mix using Procion MX dyes.

This class will focus on

§  developing skill in intuitive color mixing, based primarily on training the eye

§  an understanding of the relationship between colors

§  understanding warm and cool contrasts

§  choosing your personal palette of pure reds, yellow, and blues, from which all hues can be mixed

§  how to dye saturated, brilliant colors, and avoid mud when you choose to

§  how to create interesting complex neutrals (Bring on the mud puddles!)

§  how to shade from value to value and hue to hue

Students will dye up from 8 to 10 yards of cotton (depending on whether one-yard cuts or fat quarter cuts are chosen) using low water immersion techniques. On the first day, we will develop concepts through lecture and discussion, and do some exercises to get familiar with the pure hues. On the days following, we will dye yardage using low water immersion techniques, resulting in both solid-colored and multi-colored cloth and explore the possibilities of layering color to enrich the palette

Registration Starts:  November 30, 2019
