Join instructor Judy Newland to explore the culture and history of indigo--a naturally derived blue pigment that has been used for thousands of years all over the world. You'll learn various techniques of indigo production, from creating a vat to producing folded, wrapped, stitched and scrunched pieces. The process of preparing, dyeing, and finishing the dyed pieces will also be covered. We’ll look in the blue dye pot and see world history, science, fashion, medicine, ritual and your favorite pair of jeans--it’s an entire world to explore and share! Please bring an apron and a pair of scissors. $15 material payable to instructor in class.
