In this workshop, students will learn the fundamentals of the ancient practice of indigo dyeing, along with the historic pattern making process known as shibori. Join Aaron Head, Nashville-based visual artist, for an exploration of Indigo and Shibori. Participants will learn basics of dyeing with an organic indigo vat, along with various approaches to shibori dyeing. We will focus on Itajime (shape resist) and Kumo (twist resist) techniques, as well as more experimental techniques. Materials will be provided, and participants are highly encouraged to bring their own small, natural fiber items to dye if time allows. Students will leave with dyed cotton fabric, dyed goods from home, and a handout detailing the dye process.
