Dyeing With Kool-Aid

By Sam Skopp

From April 26 through July 29, Tracy Bromwich is Resident Artist at the Camera Obscura Art Lab. Bromwich is a fiber artist and licensed architect, who is spending her residency creating a unique fabric inspired by Palisades Park, located just outside of Camera Obscura. On Saturday, June 3, Bromwich led a Kool-Aid scarf dyeing workshop, leading participants in creating uniquely colored, hand-dyed scarves.

The multi-step dyeing process involved creating a dye out from differently colored Kool-Aid packets, and applying it to a fabric in an acid wash pattern. Bromwich also led the workshop’s participants in sewing fringes and tassels onto the ends of the scarves.

“This one’s really good. These are really fun workshops because you get to see the results of what you’ve done right away,” said Myki Arntson, Guest Services Assistant at Camera Obscura.

Previous to Saturday’s workshop, Bromwich led an ice dyeing workshop, during which participants were led in dyeing cotton fabrics with a colorful, galaxy-like pattern. Her next workshop will be teaching how to create original prints on tote bags from potatoes and other farmer’s market vegetables.

“She works with dying, fabrics, weaving, wool and felt crafts,” said Arntson, explaining the range of Bromwich’s works.

Outside of her residency, Bromwich, who is a mother of three, owns a weaving studio called Wonder Woven, that sells uniquely colored wraps for babies and toddlers. Her process involves using pre-Industrial Revolution technologies to create products with a modern look.

Bromwich will continue to offer regular workshops through the end of her residency. For more information, visit Camera Obscura’s Facebook page at facebook.com/1450Ocean.
