Instructor: Carol Reed

Skill Level: Beginner

Indigo Dye Lab for Earth Day

Upcycle with indigo any textiles, old or new that need a boost. Refresh clothing, household textiles, or whatever strikes your fancy! The instructor will lead you through creating a synthetic indigo vat and provide tools to create resist patterns on your textiles.  Each participant can dye the equivalent of 5 large t-shirts, bearing in mind the textiles must fit in the vat, which will be in a 5-gallon bucket.  Natural fibers like cotton, linen, wool, and silk work best with indigo. Once everyone’s had a turn you can keep dying until the vat ends. Please bring plastic bags along with your items so you can take home your wet items.

Please wear old clothes.

All materials are included in the tuition. This class is appropriate for teens to adults.
