Indigo and Shibori Workshop with fiber artist Alayna Rasile-Digrindakis. Alayna is a a textile artist and designer who works with natural fibers and plant dyes in her art practice as well as her collection of one of a kind clothing. She is building an off-the-grid studio outside of Helena, MT that will be the future home of Hi-Altitude Center for Textiles. Trained through a residency at the Textile Art Center in Brooklyn, NY, Alayna has a breadth of knowledge in weaving, quilting, screenprinting, and dyeing.
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!
