Hosted by Salty Sea Studios at their off-studio Brigantine lagoon front location to be advised upon reservation of your spot

  • Come learn about indigo, an ancient dye that has been in continuous use for millennia.
  • Participants will learn about creating a plant based indigo vat for home use without the use of harsh chemicals and design simple resist patterns using the ancient Japanese method of Shibori with a cotton scarf which they each will dye in the indigo vat and take home!
    • All supplies provided including rubber gloves and one cotton scarf (15”x60”)
    •  Attendees are encouraged to bring one small item to dye such as a tee, pillow case or socks:  100% cotton works best, wash prior to dyeing to insure even dyeing
