Dyeing In A Jar

On Monday I participated in a dyeing class given by Humboldt County quilt artist and dyer, Nola Flynn, at her home in Eureka. Several friends from my Art Quilt Group were also in attendance. I have to say that I love the results obtained from this method, more so than with any other low water technique I've yet tried. Thank You, Nola!

All of these fabrics were dyed in the same jar at the same time! Awesome, huh?

I'm a happy camper!

This definitley looks like one to try, the results are wonderful and very textural, almost like snow dyeing results.

Amanda Sheridan said...

Love these. What colour dyes did you use and in what order?

Terri Stegmiller said...

Totally love your results. This definitely looks like a must try technique. I immediately had the same question as Amanda, about what dye colors you used.

Gorgeous! I think the salt must help with the design, as well as not squishing down too much. I am sending this link to a friend who is collaborating with me next year on a gradation dyeing class... we may have to add this to our curriculum! Nice going, Connie... now I can't wait to see what you do with it!

My plans for today fell through so I did it! I only had a small gallon pail and am a bit concerned that I should have had a taller, skinnier container...like a plastic pitcher or something. We'll see tomorrow!!! Thanks again!
