Unfortunately, this workshop will be limited to  GMQG members only.
Faye will order the scarves, wash them in Synthrapol and soak them in citric acid in preparation for dyeing.  You will dye the scarf, apply soy wax resist to create a pattern and then dye the scarf for a second time.  A second resist and dye may be done if you wish and time permits. The scarf will then be wrapped in paper and microwaved to set the dye. After washing in Synthrapol and soaking in milsoft, the scarf will be ready to wear after drying.  It will be colorfast and washable. An original
work of wearable art!!!!!!
Any questions or discussion, feel free to call Faye at 236-5787.  Faye will be ordering the scarves on October 5th so you will need to sign up and pay before then.
