Join us at the studio for a afternoon of Indigo fun where we will show you how to set up a indigo vat, experiment with various hand dying Shibori techniques & dip dye your pieces in indigo .

We will explore a variety of different resist methods such as clamping, pleating, binding, & pole wrapping to create beautiful patterns on natural fabrics. Students will experiment with various techniques and then choose a final pattern to create & dye a scarf to take home.

No experience is necessary, all materials are supplied & included in the workshop fee, each student will leave with their very own hand dyed indigo scarf & experimental fabric pieces. Wear comfortable clothes & shoes that you don’t mind getting blue!

Please feel free to bring 1-2 SMALL pieces of your own to dye. Scour these items prior to class by boiling in a large saucepan with 1-2 tablespoons of baking soda, boil for 2-3 hours. Replace the water and repeat until the water runs clear.
