Indigo Dye Workshop
Discover the magic of dyeing your very own indigo scarves in this special workshop which will teach you the basic techniques of Japanese Shibori dyeing. You will learn how to create beautiful, unique patterns in an indigo dye vat by binding, stitching, folding, twisting and compressing certain areas of fabric to form a dye resistance.
