Description

Organic Indigo Dye Party!!!!
BYOG - Bring your own garments to this workshop all about the blue! If you missed our first workshops on the intriguing indigo vat - then we are hosting a DYE PARTY!
We will supply the indigo and snackies! You bring some great second hand clothes, tea towels, or other 100% COTTON,LINEN, SILK, WOOL, or HEMP garments!
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, dyeable (natural fiber shirts, dishtowels, ((we had fun dying a pair of white jeans last time!!!!)) etc), and wear old clothes!!
