Shibori II: Discharging and Other Tricks with Ray Cooper

  • PortFiber 50 Cove St. Portland, ME

It is required that you take the Introduction to Shibori class with Ray before taking this class.  

We will expand upon the techniques that we explored in the intro class, using discharging techniques (removing dye) on previously dyed silks.  We will be dyeing with Greener Shades acid dyes. 

Cost is $60 and includes three silk scarves and dye.  Additional scarves will be available for purchase.  You may also bring in some of your previously dyed scarves if you'd like to try discharging techniques on those.  Patterns on top of patterns on top of patterns!  Oh my!

Please bring an apron (or wear clothes you don't mind getting dye on), a notebook, and your lunch.
