Don’t have time for a full day class or just want to dip your toes into the joy of Indigo? In this class we will create a synthetic indigo vat and use some simple resists to dye a pair of bamboo socks and a cotton bandana (27” x 27”). When you’re ready to dye you will see the wonder of indigo as your creation emerges from the dye bath, colored green, and turns blue before your eyes. Additional pairs of socks ($4.50 each), bandanas ($3.00 each) will be available for purchase if you want to make more.

Please wear old clothes.

You may finish early if you’re not making additional items.
