A hands-on workshop (held at Jubilee Farm in Carnation, WA) for dyeing with natural, organic indigo. Students will watch a demo on how to create an indigo vat and then everyone will take turns dipping yarns to create wonderful greens, purples and other overdyed shades using yarns previously dyed with natural dyes. That vats will also be available to students who would like to dip their own natural yarns and fibers.
Class is held at Jubilee Farm, 229 W. Snoqualmie River Road NE, Carnation, WA 98014. You will harvest indigo and prepare a fresh leaf vat, make an indigo stock for a communal vat, and you will dip sample skeins provided. You can also bring along your own natural yarn, fabric or small articles of clothing.
