Saturday, October 26, 2019 Registration Fee: $110 (includes $25 materials fee) *K-12 Educators: Earn 6 State of Michigan SCECH clock hours by attending this workshop. This course is now closed. Take your dyeing and understanding of colors to a new level with this class, in which you will learn all about mixing primary-colored dyes to obtain a personal palette that expresses your favorite colors. We will talk extensively about the color vocabulary (hue, shade, tint, tone, etc.), work with color tools to help analyze the composition of your palette, then start dyeing! We will spend some time making samples of your palette and finessing your dyeing technique. When you have a set of samples you like, you will dye yarn or fiber to express your palette. Students will take away a set of samples that they developed in dyeing their personal palette, and at least two skeins of yarn or the equivalent amount of fiber. A bibliography of reference materials, plus forms/spreadsheets that assist with creating specific formulas, are also included in the class.
