Saturday, March 30, 2019*
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Fee: $75 (includes materials and supplies)
Space is limited to 6 participants.
Part demo, part hands-on, this mini-workshop provides an overview of indigo in various forms, as well as an opportunity to work with the artist’s fermented indigo vat. Of particular interest to fiber and textile artists who want to have a direct experience with indigo before investing in materials and supplies or more immersive learning, as well as for individuals with a general interest in textile technique. All materials are supplied. A group of small, undyed items will be available for you to select from for immersion. A variety of Shibori techniques (mechanical resists which can incorporate binding, clamping or stitching) will be employed to create surface pattern on our pieces.
*If this session fills, another session will be scheduled for a Saturday in May (tba).
Note: A 2-day workshop on building, using and maintaining a fermented indigo vat will be offered in June. Please sign up for notifications if you aren’t already on my mailing list.
