Indigo Shibori Workshop / Sunday, January 20th / 10-3pm
Join us for a day of shibori and indigo at French General. We begin the day with a short history of the indigo plant as well as instruction on how to use a variety of shibori techniques to create a resist on your fabric. After tying, binding and twisting your fabric, we will dip dye the cloth and turn it beautiful shades of blue. Students will be given a fiber kit which will include old and new fabric to experiment with.
You are also welcome to bring your own natural fabrics to experiment with - old lace, handkerchiefs, and other small items.
Indigo vats, fiber, aprons, and gloves provided.
