Approachable Indigo Dyeing with Brooke Sinnes
Workshop Description: Using 3 ingredients - indigo, lye, and hydros - plus filtered water I will show you how to make an approachable indigo vat at home. This vat works equally well for protein and cellulose fibers. We will also talk about strategies to make greens and purples in addition to blues.
Experience Level: All levels
Students Should Have: Nothing required. The handout will specify sources for materials if you want to make your own indigo vat.
Workshop Cost:Pay What You Can: $30, $50, or $70. This year’s workshop pricing is a three-tier PWYC, or Pay What You Can with options of $30, $50, and $70; we hope that those of you who can afford to pay more will do so, and that offering a lower tier makes Lambtown Festival Workshops more affordable and inclusive in this difficult year. *Please note: We will not disclose which tier any student chooses and all students will be treated equally by Lambtown Festival and our instructors.
This live workshop will be on Saturday, September 18th, starting at 4:00pm Pacific and ending by 7:00pm. The workshop recording will be available for students to re-watch at their convenience through the end of the year, with the opportunity to watch multiple times as you work through the techniques or simply soak up the expert advice. Students will get a chance to ask the instructor questions during the live webinar.
Registered students will receive a link to the webinar closer to the event date and a link to the recording afterward, and are asked to respect the instructor's work by not sharing their login credentials to allow friends to access the live workshop or video.
