2-Day Workshop
November 9 & 16

Indigo is a universal hue of handwoven and hand dyed fabrics. From desert Tuareg tribes, to the 16th generation of Kyoto dyers and to the manufacturers of denim jeans, indigo rules with its intensity and durable insect repellent qualities.

Learn how indigo permanently dyes fabrics. Use resist methods of folding, binding, stitching and clamping objects to create blue and white patterns. Control hue shades with multiple dyeing submersions. In addition to related lectures on historical, cultural and botanical aspects, students will examine an international collection of indigo dyed textiles. Detailed supply list and bibliography will be sent prior to the first class.
