Aizome Indigo Dye Workshop

Saturday, April 13, 2019

This workshop is suited for beginners.

Staff will provide guidance and a variety of supplies for tying fabrics. You are also welcome to bring in a piece ready for dyeing. You may dye 200 grams of fabric for a medium blue, or up to 450 grams for a light blue. A t-shirt, scarf, or a tote bag are good choices. Types of fabric you can dye are cotton, silk, hemp, ramic, rayon, and linen.

You may start working anytime after 11am for tying. The dyeing station is open from 1pm-3pm. The time you will need for tying and dying will depend on the complexity of your design. A few ties will only take a few minutes, while complex designs can take hours. The time for dyeing will depend on how dark you would like your piece to be. Please allow at least one hour from start to end.

Please bring rubber gloves and fabric you would like to dye.
