Let’s have a dye day! Dyers have been using indigofera tinctoria to create blue dye for centuries. We will be using a modern recipe for this 100% naturally derived fermentation indigo vat. Participants will receive an instructional handout, a silk scarf, and a cotton swatch for dyeing. Supplies and instructions for shibori resists will also be provided. Additional ready-to-dye fabric will be available for purchase.
Restrictions: Ages 10 & up
Please Bring: Gloves, an apron, scissors, and a plastic bag or two to take your dyed goods home in. Participants should dress for mess!
