Bleach Discharging on Fabric & Paper with Brooke Atherton

Brooke Atherton teaches discharging, the process of removing color from fabric or paper.  Students will use three different chemicals in class and will work outside the museum's Visible Vault (please dress accordingly).  Techniques covered are traditional resist techniques, including wrapping, clamping, and folding to make patterns.  Soy wax will also be used as a resist.  Much more will be investigated!

Participants are encouraged to bring their own fabrics - cotton dyed with Procion MX dyes and some commercial dyes work well.  Test first to see if a small amount of bleach removed the color.  If it does, it will work.

$20 supply fee paid directly to instructor may be waived if students assemble and bring their own supplies.  Contact Brooke for more information at:
