Indigo Resist Dye workshop
“Made for the love of indigo.” That’s how I describe my work—and I do love it. The whole process is enchanting and you’ll love it too! We’ll start from a blank slate (AKA all-natural cotton napkins and tea towels in this case) and create a pattern with two different resist dyeing techniques. We’ll cover the basics of shibori (binding/folding/clamping) and rice paste resists in this three hour workshop.
All levels of experience are welcome—hand dyeing is a fun and curious process, so all you need is a willingness to experiment. All supplies for the workshop will be provided. Be sure to wear clothes you don’t mind getting dye on; I typically wear black or denim as it blends in.
You’ll leave with (samples shown here):
- 4 cotton napkins
- 1 cotton tea towel
- small sample of textile detergent and dye fixative to wash your items at home (just needed for the first wash; after that they will be safe to wash with your other colored items)
