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. Combined with resist-dyeing techniques, there are thousands of patterns and possibilities - which is incredibly exciting! Level up your creativity and make fabric that is uniquely yours. 

In this class, use our indigo vats, tools, studio, and experience to create patterns on cloth via wrapping and stitching and then dipping the fabric into our indigo vat. 

Each student will receive the following fabric prepared for dyeing:
+ Essex (linen / cotton blend) - white 
+ Essex (linen / cotton blend) - natural
+ Waterford (linen) - white

Please bring:
+ Rubber gloves
+ small scissors with a sharp point
+ 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.)

No experience required.
