This lecture will take you behind the scenes to look at San Francisco Opera’s dye department. Applied color for theater is subject to many variables, starting with the design of a show, the various fabrics, the cut of garments, fittings, timelines, and budget constraints that might affect the process. This many-layered approach includes flat dyeing, ombreing, and direct applications through hand painting, stenciling, airbrushing and combinations of all. Amy works with five different dye types and many different painting colorants.
