Learn the basics of natural indigo dyeing and shibori resist techniques. We will go over how to mix your own natural ferrous vat and best practices for vat longevity and maintenance. You will be given 4 cotton 22 x 22 inch squares to practice various surface design techniques and one tote bag to dye and take home. You are welcome to bring a few of your own small materials and garments made from natural fibers (cotton, linen, hemp, wool, silk, etc.) to dye as well.
NOTE: Wear clothing you don’t mind getting messy or turning blue.
Due to the length of this workshop we will be taking a short lunch break around 1:00. Please bring a bagged lunch or there are also a few walkable options near the studio.
