Indigo Dyeing

3-day workshop (includes lunches)
Sept. 10 – 12, 2015

We will dye both cotton and silk in the indigo vat using various types of shaped resist. Folding, stitching, binding, pole wrapping and clamping will result in unique fabrics for your next creation. We will dye silk scarves using chopsticks and slinkies. No kidding! If you haven’t tried dyeing in an indigo vat, you’re in for a treat. It is truly magic.

Winter Weather Alert!
Weather can be unpredictable here in Central Oregon. When winter weather affects driving conditions, our priority is safety! Please note that if the Sisters School District is closed due to weather conditions, we will also cancel class that day. We will reschedule the class for another day, based on classroom and instructor availability.

A Friendly Reminder For A Healthy Classroom
If you have a cold, flu symptoms, or a lingering cough, please be considerate of fellow classmates and the instructor by staying home and taking care of yourself. Call the store in advance to let us know you are not feeling well, and we will do what we can to accommodate your illness.
Along the same lines, we have many students who are sensitive to perfumes and scented lotions; please avoid wearing such products to class.
Thank you!
