Description

Indigo + Bold Shibori Resists Workshop

Time: 9am-1pm

While synthetic indigo is much cheaper and readily available, using natural indigo is vital in keeping the tradition of natural dying alive. We use naturally derived indigo because we want all those who grow the plant and process it into dyestuff to be able to continue to do their important work.

During this Indigo + Shibori workshop we will cover the following:

• Learn the fundamentals of the historic Shibori pattern making process.

• Concentration on folded and clamped resist

• Dye natural fiber goods in a plant derived indigo vat

• Learn to create and maintain an indigo vat

• All dyestuff provided

• one large hand towel, tote bag, and muslin fabric

• Instruction will be given on a creating a variety of patterns.

• Feel free to bring one item to dye and please avoid bulky pieces (towels, linens, bedding etc.), as vat space and time are limited. Cellulose fibers (cotton, linen, rayon, ramie) accept the color the best. Please prewash item for best results.

No experiece is necessary!

Cost: $100 (all supplies included)

Kits available for purchase: $45 includes: natural indigo powder from India, ferrous, calx, gloves, mask, ph strips, drawstring bag the kit comes in - pre-scoured and ready to dye
