Intro to Indigo Dyeing

Let's see where art, science, and history all intersect by exploring the fascinating world of indigo dyeing. Here we will learn the historical context and usage of indigo and its uses in traditional Shibori techniques. Shibori is the traditional Japanese technique of binding, folding, and dipping into an indigo vat to create beautiful textures and gradients.

In this workshop we will combine historical teaching and hands on instruction to create our own indigo dyed dish towels, scarves, or fabric yardage. Anything cotton, linen, or silk may be dyed!  Dyeing materials and sample fabric will be supplied.  Students may also bring a fabric of their choice.
