In this workshop series we’ll learn what a neutral colour is, how to dye a crisp clear black, as well as colour correcting undertones in a black, dyeing with grey, making value gradations, working with both a complementary and primary mix plus adding in fabric manipulations, resists and dyeing threads and floss, as well as making thickened dyes for screen printing. Your personal colour palette will be enhanced with the addition of the warm / cool values and you will learn about the different colour casts of a variety of blacks.

There will be lots of good tips and hints and you will confidently work with the step by step instructions and recipes to replicate these fabrics on your own. At the end of the series you will have built up a solid repertoire of skills and an amazing stash of gorgeous fabrics!

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.
