Blue – An Indigo Workshop

JJIndigoWorkshopIndigo has been used as a dye all over the world  for centuries.  It’s no surprise that the mysteries and magic of indigo have held a special fascination for dyers, no matter their level of experience.  Come spend a day “playing” with indigo and learn more about the principles of Shibori. Through various methods of folding and clamping, binding and stitching, you can create your own unique textiles. Beginners welcome!

Bring a variety of fabrics to experiment with.  Silk scarves suitable for dying will be available for $10 each. Please wear clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.

Here is a nice little tie-in video that shows the Shibori process created by artist Laura Myriam Biran to get you excited about the class!
