Natural Indigo Dyeing and Batik

All Levels

Why not treat yourself to a fun, ancient art experience-namely indigo dyeing in the great outdoors with Master Artisan Lian Sawires.  This spring, weather permitting, we´ll get out the pails and the hose and do indigo dyeing outside at the Watershed. Learn about the mysterious dye-stuff and other natural dyes, do some binding and winding with natural resists to create amazing patterned, bright blue and white fabrics! Soy wax batik will also be taught in conjunction with Indigo dyeing, giving you a range of skills to create traditional, ethnic batiks, as well as modern, edgy designs. Everything is provided including samples, handouts, 2 silk scarves and a cotton Tee that you will dye and take home. Bring in your own undyed fabrics to play with, as well. 35.00 material fee payable to instructor. Please note this workshop takes place at the Watershed Institute. Registration is exclusively through the Arts Council of Princeton; for more information and to register, please visit www.artscouncilofprinceton.org Registrants can be a member of either organization
