You will learn the basics of how to prepare and maintain an Indigo dye vat. We will use 2 different Indigo vats, a Fructose and an Iron vat as well as Saxon Blue liquid Indigo. You will have the opportunity to dye linen, cotton and wool fabrics and yarns with the Indigo vats.
We will cover some Shibori resist dye methods using traditional Japanese knotting and stitching techniques for adding additional patterning to the dyed fabrics. You will go away with an Indigo dyed cotton scarf, a cotton market bag and hand dyed wool and cotton yarn and fabric samples.
All dyes and course materials will be provided.
Coffee, tea and light refreshments will be provided. Please bring along a packed lunch.
