About the event

Dyers have been using indigo to create blue dye for centuries - we will be using a modern recipe for this 100% naturally derived fermentation indigo vat.  We will formulate a vat together and utilize shibori techniques on fabric to create surface design before dyeing. Students will leave with a beautifully personal naturally dyed silk scarf and expanded knowledge of the craft.

Participants should dress for mess and bring their own rubber gloves, aprons, and a plastic bag to transport dyed items. Optional: sewing kit and scissors.
