Award-winning artist Malka Dubrawksy presents a bold, modern take on dyeing, geared especially to quilters and fiber artists. She’s whipped up a variety of easy patterning techniques—including resist, discharge, and overdyeing—for creating one-of-a-kind fabrics, as well as more than a dozen simple projects that use the vibrant cloth. How-to photos accompany the text, which focuses on sources of inspiration, tools and materials, dyeing recipes, and the surface design techniques themselves. Stunning images from the author’s sketchbook and photos of her workspace provide quilters with additional motivation.
