Indigo Dye Workshop 10am - 2 pm
Indigo Dye Workshop
Come enjoy the lovely and magical results as we bind and dye cloth and watch as plant pigments turn our garments lovely shades of indigo blue! This hands on workshop will leave you with the understanding of working with a living vat, how to make a vat, how to dye cloth and process for best results. Attendees learn several binding and tying and shibori techniques plus other fun resist processes. Other natural dye vats on hand: yellow = tumeric, brown = black walnut and possibly red/pink = cochineal.
