Freia Fine Handpaints

Dyeing has felt like a homecoming for Tina, owner of Freia Fine Handpaints. As a photography student at the San Francisco Art Institute in the 80’s she spent hours in the darkroom color correcting her photographic prints. Intensifying reds, taking greens out of blue to make it true, turning a pink into purple. When she learned fiber dyeing, she was amazed to see that the process is almost identical to darkroom work; changing filters and altering exposure time to get the perfect shade and saturation were not unlike the additive and subtractive process when creating her pigment percentages and solution strength for the perfect depth of shade in her yarn.
