Our balmy tropical weather here in Victoria doesn’t (usually) give us the opportunity to try snow dyeing but you can get amazing results on fabric with layers of dye and ice cubes!

As a surface design artist, I know you love colour and pattern…don’t we all! We understand the importance of subtle value shifts, repeating imagery and glorious contrasts….that’s why you are so creative! But maybe you are looking for a new method to add to your toolbox? Something that helps you move beyond anything you could imagine…..

I have a method of dyeing that is almost like Forrest Gump…..a surprise every time! By using ice as the carrier for dye powders you will achieve the most incredibly amazing patterns and textures, like nothing you’ve done before…

Join me and learn to create beautiful patterns, subtle values and glorious colour shifts with some simple and creative techniques that will be easy for you to replicate. Special folding patterns, dye quantities, safe studio practices will all be covered.

The downloadable digital files include:
- Supply List with links and password to the workshop webpage

This workshop consists of a 45 minute video and written instructions.
The workshop is ongoing and self-paced.

In Ice Dyeing Revealed here’s what we’ll cover:

Great details and examples, on how to be effective with ice dye. Susan was easy to follow and understand. This was not something I knew much about, but I will be buying all the supplies and trying this at home.

This online/downloadable tutorial is excellent for both beginners and for those interested in creating more complex dye patterns. It was of greatest help to me regarding folding methods that will yield astonishingly lovely, quite complex patterns. I'd tried to determine on my own how to fold by examining finished products, but I was not able to intuit several key moves that strengthen dye uptake, ensure evenness and repeatability. Will recommend this tutorial to my friends.
