Contact course provider
About the Course
You will learn the basics of how to prepare and maintain an Indigo dye vat. We will use 2 different Indigo vats, a Fructose/Henna and an Indigo Iron vat. You will also learn how to prepare mordants for use with cottons and silks. You will have the opportunity to dye linen, cotton and silk fabrics with the Indigo vats.
We will cover some Shibori resist dye methods using traditional Japanese knotting and stitching techniques for adding additional patterning to the dyed fabrics. You will go away with an Indigo dyed cotton scarf, a cotton market bag and hand dyed wool and cotton fabric samples. All fabrics and materials will be provided.
Most of my workshops are taught on a one-to-one basis so that I can provide individual instruction. Please contact me if you would like to arrange a workshop for a small group.
