Indigo Dye & Batik: Morven- $130
Students will have exploring the ancient art experience of indigo dyeing in the great outdoors with Master Artisan Lian Sawires. This spring, weather permitting, participants will get out pails and hoses and do indigo dyeing outside on the beautiful grounds surrounding the Carriage House of Morven Museum & Garden. Learn about this mysterious dye-stuff and other natural dyes, do some binding and winding with natural resists to create amazing patterned, bright blue and white fabrics! Soy wax batik and natural turmeric dyeing will also be taught, in conjunction with indigo dyeing, giving participants a range of skills to create traditional, ethnic batiks, as well as modern, edgy designs. Everything is provided including samples, handouts, two silk scarves and a cotton t-shirt to bring home.
Bring a lunch and your own undyed fabrics to play with as well.
Material fee $35.00 is payable to the instructor.
