Indigo Dyeing Workshop

I was asked to teach an indigo dyeing workshop by some friends in the Bar Harbor area. I'm not sure how much of a teacher I was since I didn't make the indigo vats. Our hostess, Lynn, made both a pre-reduced and a "from scratch" vat. I did show some shibori resists including my favorite - the vinyl air vent.



 Here is the piece with the vinyl air vent.




I also used a rope on this rayon scarf


And Plexiglas rectangles held closed with rubber bands on this rayon scarf


I didn't manage to get permission to use photos of anyone but this doesn't show identifiable faces

Our string removal center


Boy, you want to talk about fun!!  I just wish I didn't have to run home so quickly. I can't wait to do this again.
