Sunday Field Trip to Praxis

Sunday May 19, 2019 – Dying with natural indigo

We will be meeting at the Salem airport at 10:15. Park in the parking lot away from buildings. Bring either a lunch or snack and what you may want to drink. We could stop somewhere on the way home to eat if works for everyone.

It will cost $30 and bring whatever you wish to dye. Yarn should be skeined & tied loosely, fabrics can go in as is. They do have silk & wool scarves available to buy to dye as well. It is advisable to wear old clothes and bring latex gloves if you have them. Also some zip-lock bags to transport your wet products home.

This is a fun opportunity especially for those who are not avid dyers. Maybe check out some pictures of shibori and try that too.

YAWG Mini Workshop

May 6, 7 & 8 at 10 am at the Colonial Inn on the Canfield Fairgrounds

Liz will be teaching us how to do dip dye batik with a wax resist. It is a traditional color layering technique. We will be starting at 10 am each day and work until we feel like stopping. Bring a lunch or snack to share.

There will be a variety of sizes of silk scarves available to purchase, all very reasonably priced. You may bring your own fine silk fabric if you have it. All dyes and chemicals will be provided. Donations for the supplies and teacher would be appreciated.

Old clothes are recommended when working anywhere near dyes. Other materials to bring are:

  • artist frame or hoop to stretch the fabric
  • thin tacks or pins to hold silk to the frame
  • small paintbrushes
  • paper towels
  • newspapers
