Indigo Dyeing

Indigo Dyeing
with Anny Crane

Saturday, June 23, 10am-5pm
$120, lunch included
*most supplies included, short additional supply list will be provided

In this workshop we will go over how to make and maintain an indigo vat. We will also experiment with different resist dyeing techniques such as shibori and katazome. While materials will be provided to experiment with, students are encouraged to bring in small to medium lightweight fabrics to dye. The best fabrics to dye are light-colored natural materials, such as cotton and linen.
