Dyeing to Design

This is a course that I am taking with Elizabeth Barton and it is choc-a-bloc with ideas, suggestions, recipes and encouragement.  Can you tell I'm having fun!

Here are some of the photos so far of the dyeing that I have done.  I'll post the art work when it's a little more completed.

First lesson involved working with shades of grey (just 8).  So that we could learn about value.

Numbers 7 and 8 were redone as a totally blue fabric was produced in the first go-around.  I was more careful of the water temperature and it seemed to work.  Weird.

Lesson two moved onto colour.  I didn't do the colour wheel, having done that  a few times already.  But I did dye these shades using her recipe.
To the right of the fuchsia the next 5 have a slight amount of black added to the yellow to turquoise range.

Lesson three has been very addictive.  Here are some of the results.

You have some wonderful fabric to work with here, Dianne. The arashi is spectacular!

Love the last one in the group. It was easier to see them here than in the classroom. Thanks for the link.
