Create a Fat Quarter colour palette using Procion dyes. – Procion dyes are a really simple way to add colour to cotton fabric. In this workshop we’ll dye 8 different Fat Quarters using different techniques. We’ll cover basic colour theory so you understand how to mix dyes to make the perfect colour, and also cover more complicated techniques to create fabric with multiple colours and patterns.
