Textile Ice Dyeing - Gearing Up for Winter

      A Two-Morning Workshop with Pam Woodward

      Saturday & Sunday, October 19 & 20, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

 

The Art Gallery of Bancroft is delighted to welcome Owen Sound resident Pam Woodward for a unique workshop in the art of textile dyeing using ice.  This workshop takes place over two mornings to allow for an overnight period when the ice melts to create the wonderful designs.

 

Workshop Instructor

For over 40 years Pam Woodward worked in theatre, film, and television costuming, where she

put to use her skills in fabric dyeing, painting, embellishments, fabric manipulation, and breakdown, the technique of aging and distressing a costume. Today she teaches several techniques in dyeing, including Shibori dyed indigo, fabric painting, beading on fabric, and textile aging techniques including boro, and the Joseph Albers colour exercises. Collaboration has always been one of her great pleasures of working in the textile community.

 

Workshop Description

What could be a more Canadian textile project than dyeing fabric with ice and snow? Produce wonderful patterned effects while learning the properties of Procion cold water dyes and ice. There will also be time to explore a variety of beautiful Japanese Shibori effects in a variety of colours. Your resulting fabrics may be used in textile projects such as quilting, or finished off in one of a kind scarves. As the snows come you will be able to produce more dyed fabric on your own!
