Contents and Overview

Over 11 lectures and over 1.5 hours of video content you’ll learn how to effectively manipulate dye and chemicals on fabric.

First I’ll show you how to monoprint, a non-repeatable abstract manipulation of dye on a slick surface that’s then transferred onto a piece of fabric.  Then I’ll show you how to apply vibrant splashes of dye with little more than dye powder and a spray bottle.

Once you feel comfortable with dyes and inks I’ll show you a non-traditional way to create beautiful surface texture with only a heat gun.

Then, I’ll introduce you to two chemicals, one used to remove color called, discharge paste and another to remove fibers from fabric, called Fiber Etch.

Upon completion of this course you’ll be able to think beyond your local fabric store and create unique textiles on any fabric using fabric dye, inks, heat and chemicals.
