Dyeing Fabric For Quilts Intensive Workshop

  • Kansas City Textile Studio 924 E. 5th St Kansas City, MO 64106 (map)

In this day-long fabric dyeing intensive you will learn how to dye all of the fabric needed to make a quilt top of your choosing. We will cover: calculating fabric needs for a quilt, dyeing fabric to match your designs, and scaling dye recipes. There is homework for this workshop. Each participant will come to the workshop with a quilt pattern chosen ahead of time and a finalized color scheme with no more than 6 or 7 colors. Adjustments to color choices can be made in the workshop, but its best if you have a clear idea of what you want your quilt to look like coming into the workshop.

Depending on how many colors are in your design, you may or may not have time to dye all of your fabric. You will, however, have dye samples and scaled recipes to dye the fabric on your own or during open studio time.

 The beginning fabric dyeing workshop, or previous dye experience, is a pre-requisite for this workshop. The workshop is limited to 4 participants.

Cost = $150 (includes dye and auxiliaries, fabric is extra and can be purchased from Kim or you may bring in your own white PFD fabric)
