Description

Explore the basics of dyeing indigo, learn new techniques, and practice creating patterns and varying color depth. Yards of muslin fabric will be provided, and participants are welcome to bring their own un-dyed cotton, linen, or silk fabrics as well, including t-shirts and napkins. Please wear clothes you don't mind getting messy, as indigo will stain fabrics.

About the instructor:
Zoƫ Umholtz is a graduate from the Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland Oregon majoring in Fiber Arts. She has been living in California for the past three years, and has been rediscovering her love for natural indigo dyeing and working with small, local communities.
