Indigo Dyeing Workshop, November 6
Indigo Dyeing Workshop
November 6, 3 - 5 pm
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 dye process. You will then be given a demonstration of basic shibori inspired pattern techniques and time to create your own designs. Next, you'll dye a few small swatches of white fabric to try your hand and get a feel for the technique. We will also be using turmeric to get a color variation of yellow to also create green! Finally, you will put your knowledge to work on your own materials- participants are encouraged to bring a few smaller pieces of 100% cotton materials- Indigo will not work on man made materials.
Tickets will include all materials needed.
