Sunday Social Indigo & Shibori Workshop with Victoria Larnach Sunday 25th June 9am – 2pm Cost $150
Join us as we share the brilliant hues of one of the oldest natural plant dyes in the world, Indigo Dyeing, which has an alchemy and process especially unique to this ‘Queen Plant’.
The day will begin with learning about indigo as one of the oldest plant dye methods in the world, it’s lineage, brief history and a discussion of it’s importance in cultures around the globe. We will address issues and challenges around sustainability, chemical dyeing, cultural loss, as well as explore our connection back to Earth.
We will then design our own dyed project using a natural fructose sugar vat – one of the easiest and basic ways to be introduced into indigo dyeing – AND – we will learn several basic and beautiful shibori techniques to apply on our own indigo pieces.
We will have a demonstration on setting up the indigo fructose vat and maintaining it.
Participants will learn how to use the fructose indigo vat to achieve different shades of blue, and will leave with an understanding of indigo dyeing as well as their own finished piece.
This workshop uses a chemical-free and all-natural dyeing process.
TIME: 9am – 2pm
Cost: $150 includes all materials and a beverage. Participants may bring a small piece of fabric or garment made of 100% natural fibre in addition to the provided materials. Synthetic fibres will not take the indigo properly.
Due to the small class size, refunds are not issued unless we can fill your spot.
