What you'll learn in this dye class:

Discover the ancient weaving art of Ikat - first starting by creating your pattern, winding and dying the wrap, and then finishing by learning the basics of weaving on a pre-dressed floor loom.

Ikat weaving is an ancient weaving and dyeing technique, that has been used on almost every continent. In this technique, the pattern of the fabric is obtained by resist-dyeing the warp threads before being woven. The pattern will be appear when the warp is woven, in a very subtle and feathered way. In the first two sessions students will create their ikat pattern, wind their warp and learn how to dye the warp threads. In the remaining 2 sessions students will learn the basics of weaving on a pre-dressed floor loom and watch their Ikat design come to life!
