Discharge Dyeing Class at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts
The class is in conjunction with the arts center's exhibit "Material Girls: Quilts by Judith Jarzembowski + Rugs by Judy Bowman Anthrop (
In the class, we'll be playing with taking the color out on purpose from dark to medium colored cottons, especially cotton, using bleach and a couple of other discharge agents. It's amazing how you can get multiple colors from a variety of discharge agents on the same fabric (see the sample here where Black Kona was discharged with bleach and gel on the left in an arashi shibori pattern as well as stamped using Thiox on the right). Look forward to seeing you in the class!
