Would you have ever guessed that colored pencils could be used for painting silk? It’s true! And we’ll show you how to do it in this workshop. We’ll start by creating a composition on silk by using a fabric resist by Jacquard, then filling in the sections with various colors of specialty pencils. Your design will be permanent and can be used as a tapestry, in a frame, or as part of a sewing project. The possibilities are endless! No experience necessary. Special coupons for attendees. $65 class fee (includes supply kit).

Embrace the state of blue! Learn to dye with indigo!

Learn about the creation, care and feeding of an indigo vat using  Pre-reduced Indigo Dye by Jacquard. We’ll make the vats together, and then while we are waiting for them to "reduce," we'll discuss the science of what is going on, and how to maintain your vat at home. We'll also introduce some tying and stitching methods borrowed from ages-old shibori traditions. We’ll provide some fabric for play, assorted resisting tools and needles and thread, if you'd like to try stitch resist. Please bring one tee-shirt sized, natural fiber item as well. The $30 class fee includes an indigo kit of your very own, to take home with you.
