Indigo & Shibori Workshop

100.00

Indigo & Shibori workshop with fiber artist Alayna Rasile-Digrindakis. 

Sunday, April 23, 2017

3:00 - 6:30 PM

At the Wilder Goods Gallery

In this 3.5 hour workshop, we will learn two methods to make an organic, chemical-free, indigo dye vat.  While the vat develops, we will explore different folding (Kumo), binding (Itajime), and wrapping (Arashi) methods of creating a resist on fabric - and then we will dye everything blue! 

You will:

- Get a historical overview of the color blue and an introduction to the indigo dying process.

- Learn the fundamentals of Shibori, a Japanese resist technique, by folding, tying, sewing and clamping fabrics.  

- Learn two methods of creating and maintaining an organic, chemical-free indigo dye vat.- Be provided with a cotton bandana (22" x 22") and silk handkerchief (11" x 11") and a variety of scrap fabrics.

- Enjoy snacks and drinks and get a little messy.

- Feel free to bring a few of your own goods to dye, but please avoid bulky pieces (towels, sweaters, etc.), as vat space and time are limited. Natural fibers (cotton, linen, silk, wool) accept color the best.

- Your place will be reserved at time of payment, so don't delay and let's play!
