Instructor: Sarah Westrup
Date: Saturday November 16
Time: 10am-1:00pm

Join us at the Cardo's Farm to experience the magic of dyeing with indigo! Students will practice the process of shibori, a method of dyeing cloth using resist techniques such as clamping, folding, and tying. The shibori technique produces spontaneous patterns and forms that are known for leaving beautiful value gradations on the cloth. Participants will learn how to mix and maintain an organic indigo vat and will shibori silks and cottons provided by the instructor. Participants are also welcomed to bring any white/light natural fibers they would like to dye in the indigo vat such as, cotton, silk, linen, hemp.
