Dye Workshop 18th November

On Tuesday we were carrying on with Shibori, but we were now working with shibori knitting; using coins, marbles and thread to shape the fabric, and creating our own dye baths. The class was split into three groups, and each group made a different dye, a synthetic dye, direct dye and an acid dye. My group made the direct dye bath, I didn’t know which dyes were in the other dye baths, so I wouldn’t know what effect they would have on the fabrics we were using until after I had experimented. We had a mix of synthetic and natural fabrics, to test in each dye bath and to see which dyes worked on which fabrics. I liked the different results which I ended up with, by using the natural and synthetic fabrics in all the different dyes.
