When it’s been cool enough to work in my studio, I’ve been doing some dyeing. I enrolled in Jane Dunnewold’s Craftsy course (and some other classes) when they were $9.99 over the Christmas period. I would recommend her course – it’s very comprehensive and although I was familiar with most of the information, I was intrigued with the texture dyeing, where textured items are rolled up or clamped with the fabric before dyeing. The above piece was printed then overdyed – you can see the texture from bubble wrap on the right side of the pic. Normally I dye first, then add print as I find that is easier but overdyeing definitely improved this.
Below: 2 pieces textured with bubble wrap – these were clamped between squares of perspex.
This fabric was pleated then rolled, with elastic bands inside the roll.
4 fat 1/4s scrunched and layered in a jar with 4 different colours of dye.
