Dyes & Discharge

Instructor: Sandy Shelenberger

Saturday, August 3rd | 10am–4pm

Adding color to fabric is ALMOST as fun as discharging it! This workshop will teach students various ways to expel dyes from fabric using discharge agents such as thiox and bleach. Subtractive dyeing is a whole new way to layer your surface work--time to level up your dye game!

Instructor Bio: Sandy’s love of sewing and designing her own creations came together during a quilting class she took in 1984, where she began to see quilting as an art form and as a means of self-expression. She hand-dyes most of her fabric and uses surface-design techniques such as Shibori, batik or experimental screenprinting to create her distinctive marks and patterns. In addition to quilting, Sandy works in the media of encaustic and cold wax. Her art has been featured in 2 solo exhibitions as well as invitational and juried group events at FACES of Fiber, Estes Park, CO (2022), Visions Art Museum (San Diego, CA, 2018), Woman Made Gallery (Chicago, IL), Ohio Craft Museum (Columbus, OH) and an international juried exhibition at Schweinfurth Arts Center (Auburn, NY).
