In this Indigo Workshop you will learn how to make a natural indigo vat that you can easily make at home (and have your own indigo party!)
You will learn a handful of traditional and contemporary shibori techniiques.
You will have an opportunity to dye 4-5 pieces with natural indigo.
You will receive handouts with the recipe and best practices - so you feel confident that this is something you can do with your friends in the future. (Because I’m warning you, this is highly addictive, once you start dipping your hands into indigo, you’re going to want to over-dye everything with indigo.)
This is an invitation to over-dye pieces that are stained or have seen better days, (stained linen napkins, onesies, pillow cases) you get the idea. Cellulose + Protein fibers only, indigo will not dye synthetic fibers.
Note: An additional supply list will be provided to students.
