Indigo Workshop at French General
We need to know if thereâ€™s enough interest to book this workshop. We need to fill 18 spots so, we can keep this as a private event. The cost is $125 per person. If you're interested, please email Barbara Weitekamp at email@example.com.
Each person receives:
Indigo pigment and bucket to build their own vat Fibre kit which includes silk, cotton and linen (scarves, napkins, etc. we can talk about what you would like to dye).
Shibori materials - including: thread, needles, woodsies, clamps and corks for Kumo, Itajime and Nui techniques.
Sashiko materials - including: thread, needle, thimble and design templates.
French General offers a pretty full workshop - starting from the beginning by building the vats and then do an explanation and demonstration of different types of Shibori techniques. We prepare our fabrics, take a break for lunch and then dip for about 2-3 hours. We finish the workshop by learning about how to transfer a sashiko pattern and how to stitch on an indigo patch. French General provide aprons and gloves. People bring their own lunch or can pop out and pick it up down the road. They always have coffee, tea and cold drinks available throughout the day.
