Indigo and Color Dyeing Workshop


New workshop coming Spring 2018!   Indigo and Color Dyeing Workshop

 

You asked and I have created it! A super fun and creatively exciting workshop using INDIGO dye! This is an introduction to  the designs and patterns you can create using indigo.  This ancient blue dye works well for virtually any fabric and you’ll be using silk and cotton in this workshop here on my mini-farm.  You’ll enjoy learning some of the most popular techniques to create beautiful patterns in your fabric. The end results will be beautiful abstract shades of blues and whites on both the silk and cotton.  I’ll also be introducing Colorhue dyes in the workshop and share the ways to bring additional colors and patterns to your silk ! You’ll be leaving with several completed silk scarves and cotton bandanas.

All supplies are included. Participants should bring their long “dishwashing” gloves, a bag lunch and dress to mess (hey that’s part of the fun!) Instruction email sent prior to the workshop with everything you need to know. Enjoy the farm, the art studios and your unleashed creativity!  Space is limited. Workshop meets 10:00 am-3:00 pm. $125.00.
