Indigo is a natural dye like no other! Students learn a simple way to make this stunning blue dye, then experiment with 3 different shibori (resist) techniques to create complex patterns on a silk scarf and cotton gauze scarf. Additional cotton fabric will be available for further experiments and you may bring your own clean white natural fiber yarn or tee to dye after the scarves have been dyed. Participants will receive handouts containing several recipes for making an indigo pot, supply resources, a bibliography and internet resources. We will be working inside and outdoors, so please have sun protection and water as well as wearing old clothes, gloves and an apron.
