1333 Skiles (Phillip’s place)
Dallas, Tx 75204
1:00 pm to Sunset
Weather permitting – we will be outdoors but under a carport.
At 1 pm we’ll have a demonstration of the silk dye process from start to finish, followed by open time at the dye tables where you can create whatever you like. Experienced flag makers will be on hand to answer questions and offer suggestions. Additional demonstrations of more advanced techniques will occur later in the day for those who wish to create more sets.
Cost: $20 for silk and dyes for a set of flags.
Preparation: Just bring your imagination and wear comfortable clothes that might get a little stained. We’ll be outdoors but under a carport and shielded from the wind.
Bring an old towel if you have one. Some of the techniques we’ll demonstrate require a towel, and once you see them you may really want to do it yourself.
Each week we demonstrate new tie-dye techniques. In previous weeks we’ve covered Mandalas, the Nebula Fold, and Speed Spirals. This week we’ll demonstrate two new techniques, including one that’s not been shown before. We’ll name it after the demonstration, because the “Lasagna Fold” just doesn’t sound right.
