Online Course Dallying with Disperse Dyes


Artikelnummer: 2420002 Categorie:


Disperse dyes are special; they do not dissolve in water, and they work really well with synthetic fiber fabrics. They are also great fun! If you are unfamiliar with dyeing synthetics in your artistic textile endeavors, but open to experimenting with “modern” materials, this introductory course is for you!

In Dallying with Disperse Dyes we learn about dying synthetic fabrics. It’s a very different process than dying natural fabrics. We apply dyes to paper first then to fabric! This opens up a wide range of creative possibilities to produce colors and patterns on your fabric.

In the course, we cover two different types of dyeing methods: using transfer crayons and transfer paints.

We use fabrics that are especially suited for mixed media and textile art, like polyester non-wovens such as Lutrador® and Evolon, but we also use every day fabrics like materials used for curtains.

We create resist materials using a heat gun and a soldering iron to create fascinating patterns in your design. You will see lots of examples on how to create fascinating artistic pieces beyond the dyeing process.

Besides the three part video instruction, you will receive a handy downloadable pdf-file with more information about the fabrics, paints and other materials used in the lessons. If you don’t have all the right materials at home, don’t worry! A ready-to-use course kit can be ordered here [make link]. Of course, you can also buy individual items at our web shop.

“Life is about using the whole box of crayons.” Get your transfer crayons and get started today!
