Blues & Hues: Indigo Workshop with Sayzie Carr

Nantucket Historical Association
August 20, 2019 @ 9:00 am – August 22, 2019 @ 1:00 pm

In this three day workshop we will be working with indigo dye on fabric using a variety of techniques to create patterns, including shibori, stitching resists, pole wrapping, and batik. The allure of this dye has captivated cultures and peoples around the world for centuries. It is a thrill to see the transformation of colors as fabric emerges from the indigo vat. You can achieve immediate and gratifying results with the use of this dye. You will also learn how to make your own indigo vat should you want to continue work with this dye after this class. You will end up with some finished pieces of fabric as well as some yardage of beautiful hues and patterns of blue cotton.
