Dyeing Workshop with Sandra Wyman

Well I have just returned from a fabulous day with a group of lovely ladies where we played all day with dye and fabric and had a good laugh aswell.  What more can a girl ask for!!!

Sandra is a very nice lady who took us through a number of different techniques which we all completed and I for one learnt a great deal from someone who obviously knows her stuff.

Here is a taster of what we got up to….

We chose a colour and created 4 different variations of this colour…

we used 2 different colours to create 6 variations using different quantities of dye…

how much fabric can you get in a plastic cup!  One colour in the bottom and a second poured in over the top…

this is a yellow linen table cloth with hand embroidered flowers that I bought in a charity shop which I have pleated and dyed using 2 different colours….I can’t wait to see what it will turn out like….

this is the front of a metre square of fabric which is twisted in the centre to form a coil which is then held together with elastic bands.  Dye is then added using a syringe…wait until you see the finished results…

and this is the back.  Sandra has promised to send us photos of the finished result.  I can’t wait!!

We also had a special treat at lunchtime when Sandra showed us her incredibly impressive quilts and talked us through how she had made them.

My only complaint, as always, is the day went far too quickly!

Thanks for stopping by….
