4 Session Dye & Resist Study: MX and Acid Dyes

320.00

DYEING IS THE PROCESS OF ADDING COLOR TO TEXTILE PRODUCTS LIKE FIBERS, YARNS, AND FABRICS. DYEING IS NORMALLY DONE IN A SPECIAL SOLUTION CONTAINING DYES AND PARTICULAR CHEMICAL MATERIAL. AFTER DYEING, DYE MOLECULES HAVE UNCUT CHEMICAL BOND WITH FIBER MOLECULES. THE TEMPERATURE AND TIME CONTROLLING ARE TWO KEY FACTORS IN DYEING. THERE ARE MAINLY TWO CLASSES OF DYE, NATURAL AND MAN-MADE.

THE PRIMARY SOURCE OF DYE, HISTORICALLY, HAS GENERALLY BEEN NATURE, WITH THE DYES BEING EXTRACTED FROM ANIMALS OR PLANTS. SINCE THE MID-18TH CENTURY, HOWEVER, HUMANS HAVE PRODUCED ARTIFICIAL DYES TO ACHIEVE A BROADER RANGE OF COLORS AND TO RENDER THE DYES MORE STABLE TO RESIST WASHING AND GENERAL USE. DIFFERENT CLASSES OF DYES ARE USED FOR DIFFERENT TYPES OF FIBER AND AT DIFFERENT STAGES OF THE TEXTILE PRODUCTION PROCESS, FROM LOOSE FIBERS THROUGH YARN AND CLOTH TO COMPLETED GARMENTS.

ACRYLIC FIBERS ARE DYED WITH BASIC DYES, WHILE NYLON AND PROTEIN FIBERS SUCH AS WOOL AND SILK ARE DYED WITH ACID DYES, AND POLYESTER YARN IS DYED WITH DISPERSE DYES. COTTON IS DYED WITH A RANGE OF DYE TYPES, INCLUDING VAT DYES, AND MODERN SYNTHETIC REACTIVE AND DIRECT DYES.

ARE YOU CONFUSED YET?

RESIST DYEING (RESIST-DYEING) IS A TERM FOR A NUMBER OF TRADITIONAL METHODS OF DYEING TEXTILES WITH PATTERNS. METHODS ARE USED TO "RESIST" OR PREVENT THE DYE FROM REACHING ALL THE CLOTH, THEREBY CREATING A PATTERN AND GROUND. THE MOST COMMON FORMS USE WAX, SOME TYPE OF PASTE MADE FROM STARCH OR MUD, OR A MECHANICAL RESIST THAT MANIPULATES THE CLOTH SUCH AS TYING OR STITCHING. ANOTHER FORM OF RESIST INVOLVES USING A CHEMICAL AGENT IN A SPECIFIC TYPE OF DYE THAT WILL REPEL ANOTHER TYPE OF DYE PRINTED OVER THE TOP. THE MOST WELL-KNOWN VARIETIES TODAY INCLUDE TIE-DYE AND BATIK.

In this 4 week class we will learn about fibers,  fiber prep for dyeing, studio safety, what dyes are used for each fiber type, different methods of dying and some of the resist techniques used to create pattern. We will learn about and use- MX Dyes, Acid Dyes, Disperse Dyes and some methods of Direct Applications.

There will be hands on projects for each class and Lab OPEN studio time where you can work on your project.
