Description

Kaleidoscope design with Bengala Mud Dye - Friday PM
Instructor: Chiaki O'Brien
Date: Friday, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Min/Max: 4 Min / 12 Max
Min Age: 8
Class Fee: $35
Materials fee payable to instructor: $15, A yard square cotton fabric, dyes and pre-fixer.

Bengala dyes are made from soil; environmentally safe; and fun to use. Everyone will learn about the history and cultural significance of this unique dye form. We begin with a process of pre-fix a yard square cloth. Then fold the material in certain way, design with it however you like by knotting, twisting, clamping - and dye with as many mud dye colors you like. You will have a big circle design just like a kaleidoscope. If there's enough time for you to crate another one, you can bring your own new/washed light colored material. The additional dye fee will be charged based on the weight. This is a not a good class for people who have latex allergy.

Students should bring: An iron and ironing board if possible. Bigger towels they don't mind getting dyes on, plastic bags to take dyed material home. Gloves and aprons are optional. If you have extra time and would like to dye more, you can bring your own material (not need to be new, washed, white and light cream colors are the best). Dye fee will be charged separately depends on the weight of the material. You can choose the material from what the instructor as well (silk/cotton scarves, cotton shawls, socks and T-shirts $5-12).
