I have been experimenting and producing a quantity of procion dyed and screen printed fabrics during the last few months. I mainly dye 3 metre lengths of silk crepe de chine, silk chiffon and silk velvet. These fabrics have a beautiful drape and take the colour fantastically well to give rich and vibrant tones. I am also screen printing single images onto the dyed fabric with discharge or pigment dyes. its a whole world of techniques to master.
