About The Event
About the Workshop:
We'll be making tote bags and bandana scarves using a traditional indigo dye bath. You will learn shibori techniques in order to create patterns on your naturally dyed indigo pieces. I'll walk you through the process of how indigo works, its history, as well as various applications as a dye, and you will leave with one of a kind items made by you! You will get to make both a bandana scarf and a tote bag to take home with you. We'll start by talking about your options in terms of methodologies and techniques and then I will assist as you create your own items.
