Shibori & Indigo Dyeing with Ric Rao
1½ day Workshop November 11th 9am-3pm & 12th 9am-1pm, 2023 Cost $100.
Ric Rao of Las Cruces, New Mexico will be with us again this Fall! It been 6 years since Ric shared his love of Indigo dyeing with us so we are excited he is able to offer this opportunity to our members.
Day 1, Ric will show his samples as you prepare fabrics for the Indigo vat, teaching you how to wrap and tie fabrics on a pipe, folding techniques and sewing options to create different designs.
Day 2, he will explain the how the dye vat is created and guide you through the dyeing process. Shibori Dyeing is wonderful on natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, and silk. Yarns of the same fibers and wool. This will be an opportunity to create samples that may be combined in a collage, accessory or garment. There will be information and sign up sheets available at the September general meeting.
