Above price reflects. May 1st early sign-up discount!

Join Linda Illumanardi for a 3 day workshop beginning with unraveling the mystery of the mordant titanium oxalate and its effects on protein (silk) and cellulose (cotton) fabrics. This will lead into the effects of specific modifiers, using  copper, iron, and tannic acid.

‪Beginning with a systematic method for comparing the shifts in pH modifiers/mordants, students will then transition to combinations of dye transfer blankets, building on previous experiments and results. Whether you love comparing pH levels of various solutions and taking notes, or simply the joy of bundling with new and wonderful results, this three day workshop will assist you in gaining experience and bundling in a creative and supportive environment.
