Indigo Dyeing

IMG_5989 2.jpg

Come and try your hand at dyeing with indigo, one of the oldest dyes and one still very commonly used - for instance for blue jeans.

This workshop will introduce you to Indigo. It produces a wonderful range of blues. It is a cold water dye and very quick to use.

At the workshop you will be introduced to a number of simple but effective techniques to produce patterns on cloth, by tying and sewing.

You will also dye some wool yarn.

You have an indigo dye kit to take home so that you can continue to develop your new skills.

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

A light vegetarian lunch will be provided.

£80 per person

Course will be held at Jo Aylwin Studio, I Stoke Hills, Farnham GU9 7TE
