Special Weekend version of Tuesdays with Reut: Get Ready to Get Blue with Indigo Dyeing



You requested this on the weekend--here it is! Learn the fascinating art of Indigo Dyeing! In this class you will learn several different Shibori folding techniques to create beautiful patterns on fabric with indigo dye. Sunday, October 27, 11:00 to 1:30. 

What is Indigo Dyeing? It's an old Japanese dyeing technique that typically involves folding and binding cloth to create patterns and then dipping it in an Indigo vat. Whatever is used to bind the fabric will resist the dye, resulting in areas of the cloth that take the distinctive blue color, in patterns created by the resistance, while other areas of the cloth remain white.

Indigo dyeing is truly amazing, as every piece you dye is one-of-a-kind. The magic of watching the oxygen in the air slowly turn the fabric blue when you take it out of the indigo vat, and then unfolding the fabric to reveal the results, is truly magical.
