CLASSROOM COURSE Dyeing the blues

Tue 19 September 2023 - Wed 20 September 2023

Botanic Garden

Inspired by the indigo plants in the garden, each person will build their own small indigo vat and explore the magic of indigo on cotton fabrics. We’ll do shibori – folded, bound, scrunched and stitched resists patterns. With indigo, the fabric changes from green to a beautiful blue and becomes even bluer as we progressively build up colour. This is an opportunity to experiment, to create some beautiful fabric samples and to learn about new ways of working with this ancient dye.

Cost: £135
