All materials provided
Over the weekend, Catherine will take you through stages of Indigo dyeing, with examples and demonstrations. You’ll learn about the plant, the processing, making up a vat, the dyeing process and finishing.
You’ll also learn some traditional folding and patterning methods, known as shibori – pleated, bound and stitched techniques, lots of sampling and playing. You’ll be shown how to add to the indigo samples by using other plants to make natural botanical prints.
You’ll then be able to select your own choice of patterns with which to dye your pieces to be made up into an item such as a scarf, cushion or hanging.
Book early to avoid disappointment.
