MAKING ART WORK

Transfer dyes workshop

Workshop: Transfer Dye Workshop,  Sue Pritchard, Union Street, Maidstone, October 2012

Transfer (disperse) dyes achieve spectacular results on synthetic fabrics and can also be used on mixed fibres with up to 25% natural fibre. This course explored different ways that transfer dyes can be used. Students developed a design using layers with masks and stencils. They then used either simple geometric or organic shapes, or developed designs from sketchbooks to create an image executed in 3 layers.
