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.
