Exploring Indigo and Shibori with Aaron Sanders Head
Sunday, May 3rd, 1pm-5pm, South Huntsville
Join us for a workshop with Aaron Sanders Head to explore indigo and shibori. The four hour course will teach you how to dye natural fiber goods in a plant derived indigo vat as well as the basics of Itajime (shape resist), Kumo (twist resist) shibori dyeing, and other shibori techniques.
One yard of cotton will be provided for experimentation. Participants should bring small homegoods or clothing from home to dye. Cellulose fibers (cotton, linen, rayon, ramie) accept the color the best. Vintage linens, pillow cases, dishtowels and clothing are all perfect for this. Pre-wash in hot water before the workshop. Participants should also bring a pair of rubber dishwashing gloves. Wear old clothing and shoes that can be stained. The dye will splash.
Enrollment is capped at 15 students. Initial registration is open to Rocket City Modern Quilt Guild Members only. Registration will open to non-members on 03/03/2020. The non-member price will be $125.
