Workshop Notes for Helen dyeing part 1

You need to make up 2 litres of a soda solution (400gr) and of a salt solution (500gr)

Take 5 tsps of dye and then add 100ml of each of the soda and salt solutions.

You need 400-500ml of tepid water

Add the pre-washed , 100% cotton fabric but it does need to be dry

Remove all the air from the plastic bag – agitate well – and put aside

Leave for 24 hours

Rinse fabric through

Wash in VERY HOT water to remove the excess dye

Then rinse until the water runs clear.

Fabric Dyeing with no mess

Join Helen in this starter workshop for dyeing in which she shares with you a completely mess-free method using just a simple plastic bag.

This simple method can be adapted to give a tie-and-dye effect too.
