Marble Dyeing is an dye technique based off of the ancient Japenese 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 OOAK abstract patterns before permanently imprinting them onto luxurious fine weight Habotai silk, for a burst of lightweight sensual spring color that can be worn any way you choose!
