Event Description

With a microwave or pot of boiling water, you can transform yarn, fabric, or scarves. Wool and silk take on brilliant, permanent color through a process that is simple, safe and inexpensive. Burnout or devoré is a mild chemical process that dissolves or “burns away” certain fibers in the cloth only where you print or paint it. On silk backed velvet it leaves transparent areas with no pile. On 100% cotton it will leave holes. With blended yarns it simply thins the fabric and lets light through. Students will work with both a commercial product and a homemade burnout paste. Participants will receive the recipe and learn how to successfully design and process the cloth. On the second day, students will dye the fabrics with special dyes that result in two different colors in one simple process!
