Solar Dye-Printing on Clothing
This class is open for Drop-in. Cash or check only ($30)
Date & Time: July 30, 10 am-12 pm
Registration deadline: July 27
Combining photography, the sun’s power, and the colors of the rainbow, we’ll create artistic prints on clothes and other fabric items. Customize a t-shirt with a photo of your dog in your favorite color, or create a solar printed fern on a handbag. If it casts a shadow, we can print it on fabric. Learn about the photographic process, the history of clothes dye, and a little design theory. Bring a friend or the whole family, and don’t forget a white t-shirt or other cotton items (handbag, hat, etc.) you would like to dye and print on. If you have a photograph you want to try printing, bring it along as well. The instructor will help you choose a unique color palette and design your print.
For adults and adults with children 9+ years.
Please contact the GAAC Education Manager for any questions or to be added to a waiting list if registration is sold out.
