Rust Dyeing

Instructor: Deb Berkebile

2-Day Workshop: September 7th (10am-1pm) & September 8th (10am-4pm)

Join us for a weekend of experimental dyeing with rust, vinegar, and tannin baths. We will use rusted objects to create patterns in a range of hues on fabric. Using Shibori techniques such as clamping or folding, fabric will be dyed in a tannin bath (such as Pomegranate, Myrobalan, and other Tannin blends). Combining techniques will create grays, blacks, purples, and even some reds in our final projects. All materials included, no dye experience required. Students are encouraged to bring rusty objects to dye with (such as chains, hinges, springs, rail road spikes, etc).

Instructor Bio: I am an artist with an extensive background in textiles and quilt making. Recently, I have been exploring surface design and multi-media in my artwork. I am a naturalist and environmentalist at heart. My current body of work explores satellite imagery and creating ‘false-color’ artistic depictions of remote sensed satellite images (Geographical Information Systems). I create most of the fabrics I use in my design process. I use surface design techniques, hand-dyeing and painted fabric, plus digital manipulation of images printed on fabric. I enjoy the challenges of creating original artwork that combine my passions and interests.
