Intro to Indigo Dye
Saturday, March 2nd
11am - 2pm
Craft Habit Raleigh - 2423 Crabtree Blvd, Raleigh NC
We are so excited to partner with River Takada of RIVTAK to offer this indigo dye workshop! In this class, you will focus on learning the fundamentals of how Indigo Dye is made, best practices, materials needed, and demonstrations on how to create surface designs through ancient Japanese technique of Itajime Shibori, a shaped-resist technique. Traditionally, the cloth is sandwiched between two pieces of wood, which are held in place with string/rubber bands. This is an ancient Japanese tie dye technique.
This class will be held outside if weather permits, or in the classroom if needed. Either way, dress for mess!
- Tools, indigo dye, and sample fabric will be provided for this class
- Students are encouraged to bring 2-4 items, natural cellulose fibers: cotton, linen, and rayon, to dye/upcycle.
