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.

A Frenzy of Dyeing & Printing

The Dyeing to Paint group met today with various ideas of what they might do and a flurry of activity with fabric dyes and print blocks produced some wonderful pieces of work.
