Sight Unseen also just put out this amazing book! I haven't put it down since I got it. I'm so happy to have had them include me in it - and some of my more colorful ceramics as well! I'm also super touched by the article they wrote.

Fiber Reactive Dyes with Shabd

In this 4 week class, I will teach you the basic procedures for dyeing with Procion dyes, by immersion and direct dye methods, 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.

4 Sessions
Mondays  6:30 - 9:30PM, April 30-May 21
