This course is an introduction to low-water immersion dyeing using Procion MX fibre reactive dyes for natural fibres. Learn the basics of dyeing and the secret to my saturated colours while dyeing a 12-step colour wheel (earthy or bright) using only three parent dye colours, and then producing 4 fat quarters of multi-coloured fabric. Students will take home 16 fat quarters (total 4 meters) of dyed fabric. Instructions will be provided on rinsing and washing at home.
