Who doesn’t love indigo! This workshop teaches an easy-to-use method to develop original designs on fabric using rich indigo dyes. It’s amazing how many techniques can be combined to produce different results. Before starting, we’ll learn about fabric preparation and then plunge right in to experimenting with dyes.

Please bring fabrics to experiment with. Yarns and threads are welcome as well.

Tuition includes dyes, paints, and brushes, but students must bring the fabrics they wish to work with.  Bethany will be happy to discuss and order fabric for students who may need it, but orders must be placed with her two weeks prior to class.  Please call TIAC for information on ordering.
