Dyeing For Blue: Indigo Vat Dyeing Workshop

Indigo is the only plant source to get blue dye; it has been around for thousand years and used by civilizations all over the world. Learn how to create your own indigo vat and Shibori techniques to create beautiful patterns and effects onto your fabric. Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that typically involves folding, twisting or bunching and binding it. Lets discover the world of blue! Feel free to bring your cotton, silk or wool garments and/or yarn you would like to dye.

Cost: $80 plus material fees $10

*** Class limit of 6 people maxium

You will be provide with 1/2 meter of fabric to learn different shibori techniques. I encourage you to bring your own fabric as well or some clothing you like to over-dye with indigo. Please make sure your fabric is make out of 100% cellulose or protein fibre - those fibres are best for the dye to bind to the fabric. Avoid synthetic fibres.
Cellulose fibres - cotton, rayon, bamboo, linen, etc
Protein fibres - silk, wool
