Join me for an introduction to Indigo and Shibori workshop at the wonderful Turner Center in Valdosta, GA. Participants will learn basics of shibori dyeing, with an emphasis on Itajime (shape resist) and Kumo (twist resist) techniques. Materials will be provided, and participants are encouraged to bring their own small, natural fiber items to dye if time allows. Students will leave with dyed cotton fabric, along with a handout detailing the dye process.

• Learn basics of Itajime (shape resist) and Kumo (twist resist) shibori dyeing.
• Learn to dye natural fiber goods in a plant derived indigo vat.
• A yard of cotton fabric is provided for experimentation.
• Feel free to bring small goods to dye. Cellulose fibers (cotton, linen, rayon, ramie) accept the color the best. Pre-wash in hot water before the workshop.
• Wear old clothing and shoes that can be stained. The dye will splash.
