We had much more demand for this class than anticipated so we're offering another day!  Sign up today!

The student will leave this class understanding how to use different stitch designs and folding method effectively with Indigo dyeing, how to set up a synthetic Indigo dye vat and see the incredible transformation of colour when using Indigo.  At the conclusion of the class, the student will have produced an Indigo dyed cotton scarf 22" by 82" which will be unique to their own design.

Diny Warren has been interested in Indigo dyeing for many years, has used different techniques, participated  in Indigo dye workshops as well as given Indigo dye workshops.  She is still fascinated with all the different results.
