With a history spanning more than three-thousand years, indigo dyeing, which requires a different process than all other natural dyes, is one of the world's most revered dyeing traditions.

In this class, use our indigo vats, tools, studio, and experience to create geometric designs by clamping fabric between pieces of wood, secured with a clamp. You will receive three types of prescoured fabrics totaling 2.25 yards to use in class. 

Please bring:
+ Rubber gloves
+ Plastic bag (to take home damp fabrics) 

Recommended additional items:
+ Notebook
+ The Modern Natural Dyer
+ Class is held in our outside studio. Please dress for comfort, crafting, and weather conditions (We suggest bringing a sun hat, wearing layers and sunscreen.)

Each student will receive 3 pre-scoured, fat-quarters (approx 18x22") of the following fabrics: 
+ Essex (linen / cotton blend) - white 
+ Essex (linen / cotton blend) - natural
