This class will run several times, in July, August and September.  Dates will be announced closer to their run time, as we need to ensure we have enough healthy indigo to dye with

Backyard dye garden, 174 Victor Ave

In this day long class, we will coax colour from fresh leaf Japanese Indigo (persicaria tinctoria) that has been grown in my backyard dye garden in Toronto.  Dyeing with fresh leaf indigo is an entirely different process than dyeing with powdered indigo extract.  We will look at three methods of using fresh indigo, the ice bath, the salt rub and tataki-zome.

All materials and supplies will be provided and each student will leave with some dyed samples, as well as a handwoven 100% silk tussar and noil scarf (value of $40) which you have dyed yourself with fresh indigo.

Previous experience with indigo vat dyeing (not fresh leaf) is useful

Please note that this class will be held OUTDOORS in the backyard at my home dye studio.  Students will have access to the bathroom and kitchen, but we will be spending the entire class outside, (light) rain or shine.  In the case of heavy rain or extreme weather, the class will be rescheduled.

*Cancellation Policy - class fees are non-refundable.  Cancellations made within 48 hours may be eligible for a credit to be used in our online store or for a future class, pending availability.  Cancellations made with less than 48 hours' notice and no shows will result in the forfeiture of the class fee.
