Block printing specialists - online craft supplies, workshops & textile holidays
Experiment with dyeing fabrics
One way to make your crafting projects look really special is to dye your fabrics before you start block printing, embroidering, embellishing or stenciling. Dyeing will make your fabric unique and can really enhance the patterns you have chosen to add to your project.
We have several videos on our website showing you the best way to dye your fabric, but the one I like the best is with Myfanwy Hart. Myfanwy will take you carefully through every step of the dyeing process, making sure you get the dye where you want it on the fabric and not too much on your hands! You can watch the video here.
The Colouricious YouTube channel has lots of wonderful craft technique videos for you to watch. We have a play list of 9 videos dedicated to dyeing fabric with different textile artists showing you new and exciting ideas for dyeing and painting fabrics. You can watch the videos by clicking on the picture below.
If you enjoyed watching these videos please subscribe to our YouTube channel. We are regularly adding more videos that I am cure you will find interesting and informative.
