Participants will design their own textile piece and dye it in a small indigo vat. Learn how to use indigo dye and simple Itajime Shibori resist techniques to create pattern on fabric. Examples of this resist method – which uses physical resists such as wood, string and other clamps – will be provided along with two pieces of fabric. All materials and tools included. Participants should wear clothing and shoes that may get wet and/or splashed with dye.

Artist/Teacher Susan Owens works in printmaking and is a colorist noted for experimenting with natural dye processes.
