This workshop will explore the processes associated with natural dye and textiles. Students will dye cellulose fibers with indigo and other dyes. You will discover various fabric manipulation techniques including weaving, stitching and pleating to create two-dimensional and/or three-dimensional forms. Additional materials such as wire, rope, faux fur, and sticks are available for the participant’s experimentation with construction. Open to all skill levels.
