We love the deep true blue of natural indigo dye and we think you will too! This Saturday at our Annual Open House try natural indigo dyeing in our community indigo dip.
Bring or buy items to dye… No need to prepare a thing, we’ll have a dye-it-yourself station set up for everyone to try for free.
Indigo is a dark blue natural dye that’s easy to work with. It dyes beautifully on all natural fibers – both plant (cellulose) and animal (protein). There is no need to pre-mordant or otherwise prepare your yarn or cloth, please just make sure items are clean. Prep space and all the basic tools will be available as well as guidance for trying different techniques. Indigo will dye a true blue on white bases or you can create great effects by overdying other colors or patterned items.
Indigo Sessions will be from 10:15 to noon & 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in the School Street garage/loading dock.
White yarns and simple cloth blanks will be available to purchase, or you can bring your own. Indigo supplies will be available for sale as well if you just can’t get enough and want to try it at home!
