Indigo Dyeing Class

This one day class is all about indigo.  Indigo is the world's only natural source of colourfast true blue.  We will begin by learning the history of this magical dye plant.  Each student will then create their own organic fructose indigo vat. We will also explore some basic shibori and surface design techniques for creating pattern on cloth, and dye our bound, stitched and bundled pieces with the indigo.  All dye and supplies are provided, students bring their own fibres to dye and can dye anything they like - fabric, yarn, or garments.
