Sustainable Design Series
Introduction to Indigo

with Ganaele Langlois and Rachel MacHenry

Sunday, March 19th, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Tuition: $100.00 (+ $15.00 for materials available at workshop) + HST
Maximum 8 participants


Working with natural indigo (no chemical additives or assists) on up-cycled textiles, participants will learn how to set up a natural indigo vat and will explore a range of simple resists for patterning, including tie and clamp resists. Bring your own second-hand cotton or linen shirt (white is best) to up-cycle and choose from fabrics we will have on hand while trying your hand at Indigo dyeing using clamp-resist and a variety of wrapping and stitching techniques. All levels of experience are welcome.
