Workshopping with Disperse Dyes

imageDyeing fabric using nature’s plant life.

Preparing to conduct a friendly workshop for local textile artists next week in Dungog, these photos show you some samples I have made.

Using disperse dyes to paint imagery on paper, heat and pressure is then applied to transfer the images to cloth.

This process occurs when the dyes vaporises and moves from paper to polyester fabrics.

Their vibrant colours and transparency brings opportunity for complex design & imagery.  I am eager to see what creations emerge from the group.
