Discharge Dyeing Class at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts

I look forward to doing a discharge dyeing class on Sat., May 31, at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts, in Saugatuck, Michigan.  Check out their website and the class info/details at:

The class is in conjunction with the arts center's exhibit "Material Girls:  Quilts by Judith Jarzembowski + Rugs by Judy Bowman Anthrop  (April 11 – June 8) 

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!
