Get Your Hands Blue: Batik & Shibori Workshop - 7/23

Welcome Courtney from Courtney Craig Textiles!!!

Batik - 11am - 2pm

We'll be starting the dying day off with learning the art of Batik. A technique in which wax is used as a resist to create a custom design for fabric! This class will focus on a single motif or repeating pattern that you will apply on a 24" x 28" silk scarf. As a group, we will dip our pieces in a dye vat and discover the oxidation process with natural indigo. 

Short Break - 2-2:30pm

Shibori - 2:30 - 5:30

The second half will be an outdoor workshop centered around two parts: the hand-dyeing techniques of Shibori and dyeing with Indigo in its natural state. During the first part of this workshop, each participant will receive a yard of fabric to customize a desired repeating pattern. The second part will focus on indoxyl converting to Indigo with our pieces oxidizing greens and blues from sunshine and fresh air! Everyone will leave with instruction to care for their piece. 

** For people that register for both the Batik & Shibori Class, we will add in a free canvas tote for you to twist and resist before plunging away in the indigo vat. ;) **
