Natural Fabric Dyes Course Overview: I'm excited to share some fun and easy techniques for creating uniquely dyed fabrics as well as some more involved methods for using and creating dyes from natural elements. Throughout the course of this topic, we will cover many issues that arise when working with dyes, such as the proper equipment to have on hand, the recommended fabric choices, and garment creation from this new fabric. As we demo each technique and dye method we will apply these things and work through the issues that arise, together.
I'm also joined by instructor Gina Levesque. More about Gina... Artist Gina Levesque has been working in traditional fiber arts since a young girl. Gina works with natural dye stuffs, weaving, rug hooking, spinning, and traditional penny rug construction. Due to her love of the outdoors and training as a biologist, she finds the natural world to be the greatest influence on her work. She remains true to the roots of these traditional fiber arts by incorporating some recycled materials into her finished pieces. Many times she works with wool to create her one-of-a-kind pieces.
As an instructor, she has conducted classes, workshops, demonstrations, and given lectures on natural dyes at various locations throughout the country. She has taught classes in natural dyeing and shibori at numerous venues in places like Oklahoma, Indiana, Tennessee, and Kansas.
Her fiber art business, Across Generations, provides supplies and beginning projects to those interested in rug hooking, penny rugs, and natural dyeing. Gina holds memberships in The Tulsa Rug Hooking Guild, The Tulsa Handweavers Guild, Murrell Home Fiber Arts Guild, and Natural Dyes International.
We're super excited to have her show us the basics in Parts 3 and 4!
