Ice and a Slice!

At today’s Dyeing to Paint session we tried out ice dyeing – a simple process that requires fabric, Procion dies, soda solution and ice – not any old ice mind you – we used M&S ice cubes!

Glynis then introduced us to painting with a toilet roll which produced some lovely images of aganpanthus or alliums – whatever takes your fancy.

And, if that wasn’t enough there was a flurry of activity to dye fabric with Indian Inks

And Monica was block printing with a new pineapple print block

Another busy and enjoyable day with friends – always a pleasure!
