In this workshop students will make their own natural indigo dye bath, and learn about the basics of Shibori and dye patterning techniques.
We will go over:
- prepping the dye bath
- prepping the fabrics and fibers
- bundling, binding and folding fabrics for shibori
- dying and experimenting with depths of color
- washing and caring for your indigo dyed products
Fabric will be provided for experimenting, while students are also encouraged to bring an item to dye that is of a light color and natural fibers (silk, linen, cotton only). We will also provide some fabric items for the students to be able to take away with them at the end of the workshop.
Indigo dyes quickly and easily, and we will provide plastic aprons, but please don't wear your favorite clothes to this workshop with risk of getting dye on them!
There are 2 classes available for this day of dying!
