We are thrilled to host our first workshop with Hannah Howard from Ink & Root! Hannah is well known in the Denver area for her workshops and will be teaching us shibori tecnhniques and dyeing fabric with all natural plant dye.
This course is all about learning how to use indigo dye to create beautiful (and practical!) pieces of art. You will learn the history behind the art of Shibori, different methods to creating artistic patterns, and dye natural fiber goods in a plant derived indigo vat.
We will each dye a large dish cloth (as pictured). Each student is also encouraged to bring their own goods to dye, but please limit the number to 2 items, and please avoid bulky pieces (towels, linens, bedding etc.), as vat space and time are limited. Cellulose fibers (cotton, linen, rayon, ramie) accept the color the best.
Each student will receive:
- All materials to dye
- XL cloth to dye
- Instructions on patterns
- Hand-crafted cocktails
- Small eats
- Memories for a life time ;)
