Come in and learn the traditional art of shibori dyeing with natural indigo dye. I'll demonstrate how to start your own indigo vat and balance it, to keep it going. 3-5 folding and stitch resist techniques will be shown. Select the few you're drawn to and dye some of the plain items you have lying around the house! Clean, white or lightly colored natural fibers (such as cotton, silk, or wool) work best. Leave with one-of-a-kind fibers to keep or share! There will be fabrics and tshirts available for purchase in our storefront, students do receive discounts, but it's always fun to bring in stuff that you have lying around.
Select Sundays 2-5pm
