I am so happy that Spring is in the air that I've decided to teach my first natural dye |Indigo workshop of 2016 . Indigo is a natural dye that gives a vibrant and beautiful blue colour when used to dye fibres and textiles. Indigo is a magical plant and dye to work with & I am excited to share the wonder and joy of it with you in this 5 hour workshop.
Come join us at The Chocolate Factory , in Dublin's city centre, Saturday April 2nd from 11am-4pm for this 5 hour work-shop. You will learn the basics in Indigo dying & creating patterns using the ancient art of Shibori. I will show you how to set up your own Indigo Vat , we will explore various different Shibori Techniques using sample fabric provided. After some fun exploration & experimentation you will incorporate what you have learnt into a final piece for you to take home.
ALL MATERIALS WILL BE PROVIDED and you will leave with a scarf | Tote and all samples made in class. You are also welcome to bring 1-3 small pieces (no duvet covers! ) of your own to dye . Please wear comfortable clothing/shoes that you don't mind getting dirty. We will take a lunch break around 1pm, so bring food or money for lunch. Blas Cafe is on the ground floor of the Factory so you can grab some delicious healthy food there if you like.
I will also be selling my DIY Indigo kits on the day at a discount for participants. These kits contain everything you need to get your own vat started at home.
Our workshops fill up fast so don't forget to reserve your spot by purchasing your place in the class. If you would prefer to pay on the day please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org & let me know your attending. I look forward to seeing you there xo
