Instructor: Cecilia Gonzalez
Working with hand-dyed fabrics makes works more personal, because you create our own color palette. You will dye your own cotton, silk and linen fabrics, or other natural fabrics such as rayon, wool, ramie, bamboo, etc., to use later in your creations. You will learn experiment with gradients of the same color, gradients from one color to another, mixtures and overlapping colors.
