These courses cover the techniques of wax resist, paste resist, silk painting, and the tied and shaped resist processes of Shibori. Projects are designed to instruct students in ways of controlling the image-making process by solving color and design problems through manipulation of resists and dye bath sequences. Emphasis is placed upon familiarizing students with dyes and introducing them to other fiber techniques for the finishing and embellishment of fabrics, such as quilting, sewing, beading, embroidery, etc.
