FOCUS ON SURFACE DESIGN - INDIGO 

Join fibre artist and surface designer Caroline Forde at the studio for a weekend focused on the natural indigo vat.  You will learn to prepare two natural vats and gain a better understanding of the process of working with this complex dye and it’s endless shades of blue.  Continue your exploration in indigo dyeing through Shibori, a Japanese resist dyeing technique.

You will take home new skills and a greater understanding of indigo dyeing and shibori resist dyeing while you begin or build onto your own Surface Design and Textile Discovery Journal.  Combine what you’ve learnt while you work on a one-of-a-kind table runner and various samples for future projects.

AT A GLANCE
 9 Sep – Focus on the Natural Indigo Vat, Caroline Forde
10 Sep – Focus on Shibori, Caroline Forde

                                          

DAY 1
Explore the endless shades of blue through two organic vats prepared in class. We’ll prepare stock solutions and work form recipies for both an organic fruit and iron vat. You will gain a greater understanding of the history of indigo and the confidence to further your exploration in natural dyeing with indigo at home.

 

DAY 2
While working with our indigo vats explore Shibori, a Japanese resist dyeing technique that creates various patterning through stitching, clamping and tying while you dye multiple samples for your own Surface Design and Textile Discovery Journal.  Continue your investigation of the endless shades of blue from this natural dye by transforming the surface of your one-of-a-kind feature table runner using what you’ve learnt.
