Where: 1309 W Olive Ave.Redlands, CA 1.5 miles from RAA, grey house with white trim on the corner of Olive and Lakeside

Indigo is an ancient form of dyeing that is so much fun! There’s an almost magical process where white cloth is immersed into a vat of yellow liquid – when removed, it quickly turns from yellow, to green, to blue. Of course, it’s not magic, just a bit of chemistry! In this class, we’ll explore different ways to add pattern to cloth using different “physical resist” techniques, called Shibori . After folding, clamping and tying some white fabric, you’ll immerse it in an indigo vat and see how those manipulations create fun patterns like these:

 

You’ll leave with 1 or 2 (for another fee) scarf in your choice of silk or cotton/silk blend patterned by your own hands, and instructions on how easy it is to make your own indigo vat with pre-reduced indigo.
