Boro’d & Blue – Indigo Social – drop in and dye
- Start: 29 September 2018 10:00 am
- Venue: the workrooms
- Categories: dye workshops, Indigo Social, Textile Heritage
Join me for another Japanese-themed textiles workshop with Hiroko Aeno-Bilson. Once again we will be exploring Japanese textile culture, sampling delicious food !
On the Saturday we will be holding an ‘Indigo social’ with the theme of upcycling with indigo. Bring your old fabrics and clothing and breathe new life into them by dip dyeing them with indigo.
There will be a variety of indigo vats available to try – get warm blues from woad, earthy blues from an organic fruit vat and the traditional deep blue from a Japanese style indigo vat.
£15 studio/booking fee includes refreshments. Drop in any time between 1000 and 1400 – allow at least 2 hours for dyeing.
Your own fabrics must be 100% natural (cotton, linen or silk is best) and pre-washed. Dye charge 5p per gram payable on the day.
