Using traditional tie dye, folding, clamping and resist techniques you will create a range of beautiful blue fabrics and threads. You can then use potassium to overdye, bleach and redye fabric to create overlaid colours of blues and browns and white. All the techniques learned on this course can be applied to other dyeing methods. The course is suitable for anyone interested in dyeing, no previous experience is required.
