Join Aaron Head, Nashville-based visual artist, for an introduction to Indigo and Shibori workshop on Sunday, February 24 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Participants will learn basics of shibori dyeing, with an emphasis on Itajime (shape resist) and Kumo (twist resist) techniques. Materials will be provided, and participants are encouraged to bring their own small, natural fiber items to dye if time allows. Students will leave with dyed items, along with a handout detailing the dye process.

• Learn basics of Itajime (shape resist) and Kumo (twist resist) shibori dyeing.
• Learn to dye natural fiber goods in a plant derived indigo vat.
• One yard of cotton fabric will be provided. All dye materials are provided.
• Feel free to bring small goods to dye. Cellulose fibers (cotton, linen, rayon, ramie) accept the color the best. Pre-wash in hot water before the workshop.
• Wear old clothing and shoes that can be stained. The dye will splash.
