Learn to make pattern and design using soy wax as a resist on your fabric, then dye in the indigo vat.
We will doodle and print on fabric with non-toxic soy wax to make quilting fabric ready for you to make your one of a kind quilt.
Soda ash treated fabric available for purchase at the shop for use in class.
Wax and all other tools are provided.
You’ll dye your patterned fabric in a magical indigo dye vat. Dress in clothes (and shoes!) that can be stained blue.
My plan for the Deep Into Indigo Retreat is to teach shibori techniques of many kinds, batik techniques and how to make henna, fructose and iron vats and to dye, dye dye!!! And also to – with the help of the awesome Jenina Mella – feed people well in a beautiful and warm environment and bring the fun!!
I hope you’ll join us. Early bird pricing ends on June 15th!!!
Today, I’m dyeing fat quarters on this beautiful summer day. #blog
I will be doing a live demo of wax batik. I’ll also have some indigo dyed batik and shibori fat quarters for sale at this handcrafted home and lifestyle goods made in the midwest. It’s a modern-mercantile style event. Convene to shop, browse, carouse, sample and seek. With the wares of midwest artisans, tastes of local small batch food and brews, and the ambient sounds and sights of music and live demos, there will be much to shop, explore and savor.
This is a free event open to all.
