The Magic of Indigo
May 4 Friday 5-7pm
May 5 Saturday 10-2pm
Chagrin Valley ArTs HoP
Want to Create & Explore Shibori and Indigo?
Here’s how…
Come learn about fiber arts with this Magic of Indigo workshop for the Chagrin Valley ArTs HoP!  We will use Shibori techniques to fold, shape and tie fabric to prepare it for dyeing with indigo, one of the oldest plant-based dyes.  Shibori is the Japanese technique of shaping fabric to prepare it for dyeing to create beatiful designs and patterns.
The magic happens after the piece is dipped into the indigo dye vat.  As the piece is exposed to air, the indigo oxidizes, magically changing the color from green to deep blue!  Come get ready to be amazed by the Magic of Indigo!
No experience necessary.  Kid Friendly.  Supplies will be available on first come, first served basis.  Please allow at least 30 minutes for the activity.
For a complimentary cotton bandanna size or fat quarter, tell us how you will use it.  Here is the link:
After the event, don’t forget to post a picture of you using it!
We’ll have additional fabrics for you to dye:
– Silk Scarf 11×60 $10
– Silk Scarf 11×80 $15
– Rice Paper 11×18 $4
