(Sp18.332) Intro to Organic Indigo Dyeing & Shibori

(Sp18.332) Intro to Organic Indigo Dyeing & Shibori

(Ages 18+) Explore indigo vat dyeing and Shibori resist techniques to create beautifully patterned textiles. Learn how to make your own vat of organic indigo dye. Experiment with Shibori, an intricate version of “tie dye” resist. Rather than treating cloth as a 2D surface, with Shibori it is given a 3D form by folding, crumpling, stitching, plaiting, or plucking, and twisting. Everyone will get to make an organic indigo starter to take away and make your own vat at home. We’ll have some fabric available, but recommend bringing 100% cotton, hemp, or linen fabric, undyed or a small clothing item to put in the vat. You’ll come away with a dyed, upcycled garment or fabric to make into a scarf or pillow.
