Event description

Description

Nathan's back to teach this popular class! He will demonstrate how to use Indigo dye to achieve varying depths of color from a single dye vat and experiment with patterning techniques. Material for experimentation and 1 tea towel for a final project will be provided. You can bring up to 4 items that are light in color and made of cotton, linen, or silk to dye also. Wash items before bringing them to remove anything that might impede the dying process. Wear clothes that aren’t important or an apron as this process is messy.

Nathan Somers is an elementary school teacher and has been working with natural fibers and dyes for the past 8 years. His inspiration comes from antique Japanese indigo dyed fabrics and their extensive use of unusual fibers such as, wisteria, kudzu, ramie, nettle, and upland cotton. Nathan grows and forages many of these fibers and uses them to spin and weave.
