JUNE 30 • Marble Dyed Summer Silk: French Scarves
Marble Dyeing is a dye technique based off of the ancient Japanese Suminagashi tradition, developed in Turkey after the knowledge migrated westward in the 15th century.
By combining water and a plant-based sizing agent, paints are “floated” on top of thickened water solution, allowing you to create pools and puddles of color before manipulating them into patterns.
In this class, we will mix colors using specialized paints and learn how to work with the flow of water to blend them into your own one of a kind abstract patterns before permanently imprinting them onto luxurious fine weight silk, for a burst of lightweight color that can be worn any way you choose!
All supplies and instructions for care included. Finished scarf is a 17 x 17 French Square.
