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.
