Test

Join Dr. Janette Knowles, head of the Art Department and Director of Wehrle Gallery at Ohio Dominican, in this evening of exploring the fine art of "discharge dyeing," in which color is discharged from the cloth through the use of bleach. Workshop participants will be introduced to two methods, shibori, in which the cloth is folded or bound before it is put in bleach resulting in elaborate patterns; and resist, in which plant forms will be placed on the cloth before bleaching.  Both techniques result in stunning art work.
