Introduction to Indigo Dyeing

Indigo is one of the oldest dyes and is widely used in industry, for instance for jeans. It is a cold water dye and is very effective for tie dye and Shibori.

At this workshop you will learn to make an indigo dye bath, be introduced to basic tie dye and Shibori techniques and use these to produce a variety of trial pieces on different types of material and yarn, including a fabulous silk scarf

At the end of the day you will also take home an Indigo Dye Kit so that you can continue to develop your new skills.

All materials provided but please bring your own apron and gloves.

The day runs between 10am and 4pm and a light lunch will be provided.

Only two places are offered on each workshop to ensure one to one tuition and maximum hands on experience.
