Indigo Shibori Garden social
Join us November 21st for an evening of indigo textile design in our small group garden setting!
Are you interested in learning how to work with indigo?
Would you like to create a curated sustainable closet designed in part by you?
In this small group workshop, you will find the freedom to create an indigo and patterned textile that you will cherish for all time. I offer a short intro to natural indigo and describe the process of shibori binding, an ancient Japanese technique. Next, we explore simple binds, ties, and folds.
As soon as our textiles are folded and tied, they are ready for a dip in the natural indigo dye vat. After 1-3 dips in the indigo vat, guests are ready to open their bundles to reveal the stunning Shibori patterns as we watch the indigo turn from green to blue as they hit the air revealing the spontaneity, magic, and beauty of indigo Shibori.
You will up-cycle 2 pieces of your choosing using natural indigo and learn about how to create an organic indigo vat, all surrounded by the beauty of our Miracle Mile dye garden. Everyone will have their own materials, be spaced over 6 feet apart and all social distancing measures including masks will be in place. Mask and bandana blanks will be available to purchase.
Customize your wardrobe sustainably and beautifully, or make a piece of frame-able art for your wall.
Limit to 10 participants. Pricing is designed to provide a value and be pandemic friendly. Grab a friend and create gifts for the holiday season.
