Ice Dyeing Workshop

This summer Lenore Laverty led an ice dyeing workshop for the Barnswallows. Fabrics are pre-soaked, covered in ice, sprinkled with Procion dyes, and then carefully layered in pails to let the dye soak in and work its magic. The outcome is never sure – we often get surprised!

Here are some of the beautiful fabrics our members created that sunny August afternoon. There is definitely an orange theme!

A big thank you to Lenore for sharing her expertise, as well as Nancy Penner for lending her backyard workshop for the occasion.
