About the event

Let’s have a dye day! Dyers have been using Indigofera tinctoria to  create blue dye for centuries. We will be using a modern recipe for this  100% naturally derived fermentation indigo vat. Participants will  receive an instructional handout, a silk scarf, and a cotton swatch for  dyeing. We will also delve into Shibori resist techniques on our cloth  before dying. Additional ready-to-dye fabric will be available for  purchase.

Suggested supplies to bring: Gloves, an apron, scissors, and a plastic bag or two to take your dyed goods home in. Participants should dress for mess!

Pre-registration is strongly suggested. This class has a minimum and  maximum attendance requirement so reserve your spot today! If  participant minimum is not met two weeks prior, the workshop will be  cancelled.

Ages 10 and up.

From Lavender Hill: SAFETY FIRST. To ensure the safety of our guests and staff, we ask that everyone wear face masks when inside our facilities, participating in  artisan classes, or within close range to others. We are actively taking  steps to keep our farm as clean and as safe as possible and greatly  appreciate your cooperation. We are operating in accordance with CDC  guidelines.
