Indigo Dyeing Workshop
June 17, 2021
In this adult workshop, we will learn how to dye in cold water Indigo. It will begin with a brief history of Indigo along with the different varieties of ways to use the plant in the dyeing process. You will then be given a demonstration of basic shibori and an overview of some of the patterns you can create. Next, you'll dye a few small swatches of white fabric to try your hand and get a feel for the technique. Finally, you will put your knowledge to work on your own materials- participants are encouraged to bring one or two smaller pieces of 100% cotton fabrics to dye such as a t-shirt, handkerchief, or bandana.
Please note that the Indigo will not work on man-made materials.
Tickets will include all materials needed to dye and wine (limited) or water to enjoy while you learn.
