i'm teaching a dying class

October 03, 2011

I'm teaching a dying class at the Textile Arts Center this month, come learn how to make beautiful fabrics and clothing with me!


Fiber Reactive Dyes with Shabd

In this 3 week class, I will teach you the basic procedures for dyeing with Procion dyes, by immersion, painting and tie-dye, with both cellulose and protein fibers. You will learn various tying, dying and shibori techniques, as well as basic color theory and design concepts for dying. It will be fun, and colorful and bright! Discover the dyer in you and design your own dye patterns! Students will focus on swatches to perfect technique and in the last class work on individual projects. 

No experience necessary. Classes are designed to focus on a learned skill rather than a final product. At TAC, our mission is to provide skills and knowledge for a lifetime! All necessary materials are included for swatch making. Any additional fabrics and materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision. Also, we have Open Studio time for students to put their new knowledge to practice.

The Textile Arts Center is a beautiful 3200sf space in Brooklyn's Carroll Gardens dedicated to providing support to fiber artists and everyday people interested in working with fibers. TAC holds classes, workshops and special events as well as running open studio hours, hosting gallery exhibits and running an artist in residency program.

3 Sessions
Sundays  2:00 - 6:00PM, October 16 - October 30
The Textile Art Center in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn

    Their food consists generally of grass, hay, kirbee, bran, oil-cake, cotton seed, &c. But when they have calved the best food to give them <a href="http://www.classicbagsoutlets.com/"><strong>Chanel Bags Outlet</strong></a> besides grass for the first week at milking time, is boiled jawaree and baujerce, about one seer of each, with a table spoonfull of zeera. When brought home to be milked, cotton seed or oil-cake is given to them. They delight in water, and will not thrive unless they have a swamp or pond to wallow in. <a href="http://www.classicbagsoutlets.com/prada-bags-c-13.html"><strong>Prada Bags Outlet</strong></a> There rolling themselves, they work hollows, when immersed, deep enough to leave nothing but their horns, nostrils, and eyes above the water. When a buffaloe has calved the young one is immediately taken from her and brought up by hand; if a male, it is given away, being considered useless except for draft or to breed with. The males are very savage, and if taken out to the jungles with other cattle, will fight even the tiger; should he venture to attack the herd, the female will also make <a href="http://www.classicbagsoutlets.com/"><strong>Louis Vuitton Discount</strong></a> the same resistance. The milk sells from eight to twenty seers the rupee, and ghee made from it with care may be considered one of the most useful of domestic articles, and will keep sweet and good for years.These are procurable in all parts of India, Goals. of a fine description, though varying much in appearance. The Surat goat brought <a href="http://www.classicbagsoutlets.com/michael-kors-bags-c-1.html"><strong>Michael Kors Factory Outlet</strong></a> to Bombay is highly prized. It is short-legged, well formed, round and compact, giving as much milk as a seer at a time. The "kid affords a delicate meat, for which Bombay has long been celebrated. The goats from the banks of the Jumna in <a href="http://www.classicbagsoutlets.com/"><strong>Michael Kors Factory Outlet</strong></a> Hindostan are a long-legged breed, but excellent milchers; so are some from the southern part of India. They all feed alike, and will eat leaves and roots where no other animal could find a subsistence. It is necessary to give a little grain, morning and evening, to your milch goats. <a href="http://www.classicbagsoutlets.com/chanel-bags-c-25.html"><strong>Chanel Bags Outlet</strong></a> Half a seer to each of gram, or other grain at a time is quite sufficient, and, if you have a garden, the refuse leaves from any vegetable will be greedily http://www.classicbagsoutlets.com/ eaten by them, as also cakes of bread made from the common sorts of grain, such as jawaree, baujeroe.
