88006 Textiles: Dye Methods6cp; 3hpw (workshop)
Experience with textile studies is a benefit but is not essential.
Fashion and Textiles
This subject is taught online this semester, so consequently we have modified the content to suit home dyeing. Students are introduced to the principles of natural dyes, colour and resist patterning as they relate to the fashion and textiles industry. Through a series of dye home workshops, students are introduced to natural dye techniques and are encouraged to investigate innovative approaches to colouring and patterning cloth. In this studio module, students experiment with natural dyes and explore rich cultural textile histories including the ancient arts of Japanese Shibori.
This subject introduces students to methods of generating resist textile patterning through techniques such as binding, stitching, tying and pleating. The studio explores natural fibbers and fabrics and their relationship to dye techniques. Through material experimentation, students develop textile concepts and colour sensibilities in a sophisticated and individual way. An emphasis throughout the subject is placed on a professional and sustainable print room practice.
