How to Tie Dye with Isa Rodrigues of the Textile Arts Center

Learn how to tie dye with Isa Rodrigues of the Textile Arts Center in this Howcast video.


Hi guys. My name is Issa and I'm the dyer and teacher and studio manager at The Textile Art Center.

I got into textiles because I studied textile conservation and the reason for that is because my family has always been really passionate about textiles. All my grandmothers and my mother, they're makers and I grew up in a really textile environment and I really, really love it.

That's what led me to the Textile Art Center, which is a place where you can learn all sorts of textile art techniques. We have an extensive programming for adults and for children, including weaving, dyeing, embroidery, screen printing and of course, tie dyeing too.

I really, really like dyeing and I like tie dyeing and that's my expertise. I just really like how you're able to make your own colors and design patterns and just like change the surface of fabrics.

I hope you had as much fun as I did during these tutorials and if you want to learn more about it, please check the Textile Art Center. Otherwise, please try it at home. As you saw, it's pretty easy and it's a lot of fun. I promise.
