Want to try indigo dyeing but not sure where to start?
Want to give new lives to your old clothes?
Or, just looking for a fun and crafty activities?
This is a perfect class for you.
In this workshop, we teache you basic shibori (tie-dye) and itajime (wood-clamping) pattern making, and how to dye in Yamato Indigo, natural-blend indigo dye from Japan.
This is BYOD (Bring Your Own Dyeable) class. Bring 2 pieces, or up to 450g (1 lb) of cotton, linen or silk clothes, home linens or fabrics. Any additional weight will cost $0.15 per gram. No wool or synthetic can be dyed in this workshop. A pair of canvas sneakers is count as one (225g) garment.
Used or pre-washed garments can be dyed better. In case you want to bring bran-new items, we recommend to pre-wash and dry them before the class for better results. For brand new canvas, please make sure to boil the canvas for 15 to 20 min, rinse and dry before the class. Thinner fabrics are better suited to make shibori patterns.
This workshop is recommended for all levels. No previous dyeing experience is necessary. All materials and tools are included in the price.
