Kachina Martin, who is a public school art teacher as well as craftsman and juried member of the Pennsylvania guild. We started off learning about direct dye application on a scarf and allowing it to "batch" or cure, wrapped in plastic, overnight.
This project would get a second technique and dye applied on day 2.
We also learned several stitching and binding techniques. On this piece, rows of running stitches are pulled to tightly gather the fabric, then the thread is knotted to keep it pulled tight before dyeing.
Here's what it looks like after dyeing and removing the stitching.
That's what we did in the morning of day 1. Look for another installment tomorrow!
