Organic Indigo with The Dogwood Dyer | $100 Single/$160 Friends and Couples

Join Liz Spencer of The Dogwood Dyer in exploring the king of natural dye plants: Indigo. Unlike most modern indigo dye vats that are prepared quickly with a chemical reducing agent, this workshop will use only sugar and natural ingredients to activate the indigo dyeing power of the vat. Learn the science behind the nature of indigo while experiencing the alchemistic wonder of its transformation from indigo white to blue! This dye is perfectly suited for experimenting with shibori- traditional tie, bind, and stitch techniques. Liz will demonstrate her favorites including itajime and arashi and encourage students to try their hand at surface and pattern design.
Each participant will leave with natural fabrics of different types in blue, a list of resources, and an instructional guide on how to repeat the process at home. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own medium to small sized natural fiber (cotton, wool, silk, linen, etc.) garment or item to dye in the reduced vat.
