Ice Dyeing Magic!

Explore the magic of ice-dyeing ~ you will be amazed at the results!  Join textile artist and fellow yoga student Violet Prihoda for an introduction to the surprising results of ice-dyeing.  Bring your own pre-washed cloth/t shirts and you will learn the technique and given everything you need for your project. Bring up to 4 mid-sized articles or lengths of cotton (such as 4 t-shirts, or 4 pieces of 1-2 yards of fabric or the equivalent.

Suitable for all skills levels, from the first-time dyer to the quilter/textile artist who wants to create their own color palette of fabrics!

NOTE:  You will be rinsing out your projects at home following the workshop, so will leave with them in small plastic containers.  All supplies, dye, ice and other materials (except your fabric) will be provided.

Violet is a self-taught textile artist with years of experience, who is also an organic gardener and yoga student.  She lives with her husband near Sparta, and also teaches block printing at SUTRA.  Viole grows the marigolds you find all over the shop in the late summer and fall!
