1-2-1 Acid Dye Course / by Faye McNulty

In December 2014 I had the pleasure to teach Zoe, a Fabric Technologist working in the fashion industry. We spent the day exploring how acid dyes work with certain fibre types, how to expose silk screens, creating the dye pastes using recipes and how to colour match.

Zoe achieved some wonderful prints in an ambitious 6 colour design and printed them beautifully.  Below you can see the results of her hard work.

Zoe will be continuing her one to one courses with me in the near future, and learning more exciting print processes that will help develop her industry knowledge and create designs she knows will work well when developing for Italian mills.
