Dyeing for Quilters

Instructor: Deb Berkebile

Saturday, November 9th | 10am-4pm

Dyeing for Quilters is a class designed to introduce beginners to low-immersion dyeing on cotton. With this technique, one uses as little water as possible, crunching or folding the fabric together for a resist effect; applying as little or as much stirring as you want will result in different patterns. This process creates 3 values (light, medium, dark) of 12 different colors of the spectrum—you will take home 9 yards (27 feet) of fat quarters in all colors of the rainbow. Use this fabric for quilting, garments, home goods, or whatever else you need! 

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.
