The goal of this class is to help silk lovers become comfortable dyeing silk scarves and to create a pattern called Arashi Shibori, using a pole wrapping technique as a resist. The aim in this first class is to give students the tools to talk about their color choices (tint, shade, tone, color harmonies like analogous triad, etc.), how to interpret them with dye, and how to be comfortable painting dye on the scarf with sponge brushes. After the first layer of color is applied and set, we will wrap the scarves around a pole and apply a second color of dye to create the pattern. Students may also choose to use a dye thickener to enhance the resist techniques. There will be several examples of these concepts shown in silk scarves to help students envision their results and to help hone their color choices. Faculty Rita Petteys Instructor of Visual Arts, Interlochen College of Creative Arts Schedule Supplies A materials fee of $25, included as a part of the registration fee, covers at least two rectangular Haboti silk scarves, resists for use in class, along with dyes and chemicals. Students will also be able to purchase additional scarves from the instructor. This class is messy, so please wear an old apron (or please wear old clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting dirty). Students should also bring rubber gloves for hand protection, any resists they would like to use for a patterning effect, and a dust mask to wear while measuring dye powder.
