Virtual Dye Studio – Basic Ice Dyeing with Live Q&A
June 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
Back by popular demand! Experience the delightful anticipation and surprise of ice dyeing in this 2-part virtual workshop. Perfect for beginners. You’ll learn the entire basic ice dyeing technique, and also directly influence the outcome by participating in group polls along the way.
During this interactive demonstration and live Q&A, you’ll vote for designs, colors and more. (No supplies or experience required to participate.) As a bonus, you’ll receive a recording of the event afterwards, so you can follow along with the step-by-step directions at home.
Ice dyeing is an overnight process, so we’ll be gathering in the virtual studio two days in a row:
Wednesday, June 16 and Thursday, June 17 ~ 2021
6:30 pm Eastern Time each day
Day 1: (2 hours) Learn (and influence) the setup of ice dyeing projects (including both clothing and flat fabric options). Understand the materials, steps, and safety practices for creating striking one-of-a-kind works using Procion fiber reactive powdered dye.
Day 2: (1-1.5 hours) Return for the big reveal. After the results of our collective creativity are unveiled, learn the rinsing, washing and fixing procedures that will keep work looking gorgeous. Stick around for live Q&A.
This gathering offers flexible pricing for those experiencing economic strain. Suggested donation: $10 – $35
Hear what fellow students are curious about and experimenting with. Tickle your imagination for future pieces. Explore techniques without risking your own fabric. Connect with other interesting people around the globe as we savor the anticipation of this creative process.
No materials are required to participate in the virtual demonstration. After you register, you’ll be able to access the Online Event page. There you’ll find a complete supply list along with detailed written instructions to use as an aid for your own future adventures.
