Resist Dyeing on Felted and Woven Wool (A Farewell Tour)

Join the instructor, Chad Alice Hagen on her last trek through the far wilds of the world with her 200# of rust and steel tools and clamps. We will explore five days of the wonders of resist dyeing by folding, refolding, clamping, dyeing and over-dyeing to create beautiful patterns and luscious colors on both felted needle punch batts and 100% woven wool flannel. We will work with 4-9 dye baths at a time, changing intensities and values of the colors to create one of a kind masterpieces.  DyeMaster Chad will talk about creating a safe home dye kitchen, sources of everything as well as the hidden secrets of reverse resist dyeing.  Class will also use their skills to make a Resist Shaped Mokume/Bark scarf.

Instructor Bio:

Chad Alice Hagen has two big loves in her life - bookmaking and textiles, especially the resist dyeing of hand felted and woven wool. She has been exploring resist dyeing and surface design on felt since 1979 and exploring the book structure since the turn of the century! Combining these two interests gave her the tools to begin her exploration of making books featuring textiles, handmade or rescued, as the covers.

She received her BA and MS degrees from Univeristy of Wisconsin - Madison and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her felt work has been on the covers of Surface Design Journal, Shuttle, Spindle and Dyepot, and Fiberarts magazines. She has also written books about feltmaking - Weekend Crafter: Feltmaking Fabulous Felt Hats and with Jorie Johnson - Fabulous Felted Scarves (Lark Books). She is currently working on a book about resist dyeing on wool.

Chad has been teaching workshops for over 40 years throughout the U.S., Europe, Australia, New Zealand and at her current studio in West Asheville, North Carolina.
