The seemingly mysterious dye, INDIGO, used throughout the world but famous for its special development in Japan, dyes BLUE —- from light to darkest of navy. When combined with the Japanese technique of SHIBORI (stitch and bound resists), the two create delightful patterning on natural fabrics (cotton, linen, rayon, silk, wool). Further combined with already colored fabric, multiple colors can be achieved. Students will have their own indigo pot, learn about the history and use of indigo around the world while stitching their fabric, and develop a basic library of stitches in order to design pieces using shibori. Fabric, yarn, and small pieces of clothing (shirts/blouses, thin fabric dresses, small jackets, scarves) can be dyed. A complete supply list will be sent upon registration. Two days. $200 plus $12 for materials.
