the class will be limited to 10 students

If you have taken Aaron’s indigo classes in the past or if you are new to the medium, Aaron will teach you lots of new ways to work with indigo dyeing and you will learn something new.  Students will learn to create their own organic, plant-based indigo dye vat, as well as how to create patterns using paste resist, and stitch resist techniques.   All materials will be provided, and students are encouraged to bring their own small, natural fiber items to dye if time allows. Students will leave with dyed cotton fabric, along with a handout detailing the dye process and basics of an indigo dye vat.  Aaron’s classes are super fun, informative and great for anyone regardless of experience with the medium.  There will be a lunch break.  Lunch is on your own.

Materials are provided by the instructor.
