Seeing Color: An Introduction to Fiber Reactive Dyes

In this class, students will be introduced to basic surface design techniques. Students will learn how to thicken powdered fiber reactive dyes with print paste, how to mix colors, how to apply dyes onto fabric and how to set these colors using soda ash and steam.

We will be making our own color wheel and learning basic color theory.  This class is for those who are more technically minded and who are interested in learning the basic processes of fiber reactive dyes before applying any type of creativity.
