If you missed our first workshop on the intriguing indigo vat - then we are hosting a second round! If you attended the first, join back in! We will have new techniques with tie and dye (Shibori) to explore PLUS one large 5 gallon synthetic vat to dye your heart out! You will also get to create your own personal indigo vat to take home, name, and love.
For a little more info….Indigo is a natural dye from plants that has been used to create deep, rich blues on textiles for centuries. It was the original dye for blue jeans! So, how do you create it and where does it comes from? We will create exploratory samples and dig into the fascinating history and science of this dye!
Things you will need to bring: rubber gloves, 2-quart wide mouth jar (plastic or glass), dyeable (natural fiber shirts, dishtowels, etc), and wear old clothes!!
Wine and snacks will be provided!
