Batik Indigo Dyeing // April 18th


Hosted by Light Gallery + Smallholding & Craft

Wednesday, April 18th from 6 to 9pm

Come in and experience for yourself the magic of indigo! In this workshop, you will create natural blues on cotton silks and linens from an indigo vat that you will make. The class will guide you through creating dye vats, the dyeing process, and fixing your fabrics. Alongside the dyeing process, you will learn how to create negative patterns in your dyed fabrics using Batik. This technique gives you a lot of control in creating patterns over your fabrics, paper, and even eggshell surfaces.
