I’m new to VHS and am planning to hand dye a few meters of fabric. I will need a long and wide table to do this. It was recommended to me that I could use the “Classroom” area- the first room to the right when you enter VHS from Venables Street. I would put two tables side by side.
After I finish painting the fabric laid out on the tables, the fabric needs to just lay there for 48 hours. So say I start painting on a Monday, the fabric cannot be moved until Thursday morning- thus technically I would be occupying the “Classroom” area for approx. 3 full days and removing the fabric on the 4th day, thus no one else would be able to use the tables and put things against or on the table.
I wanted to give everyone a heads up first and see if anyone is planning on using this room at a specific time. If you are, we can coordinate so that we don’t overlap. I haven’t decided the start date YET, since my fabric is still on its way. I will probably start dyeing the week of June 7 or June 14 since I need to do some color testing first as well and testing my steamer before working on the final fabric.
Does this sound ok with everyone?
Let’s say YEAH TO FABRIC DYEING!!!
