Indigo Tour Stops in East Austin May 21

4 May

Area Indigo beginners & Wannabees here is an opportunity coming to our doorstep!

The free seedling giveaway includes a conversation and show-and-tell about fresh leaf extraction and aqueous fermentation extraction.

The 6-8 PM workshop is an introductory workshop to vatted indigo dyeing and itajime Shibori pattern making. No experience necessary. The course covers creating a ferrous vat from scratch, 4 basic folding forms: stripe, lattice, hexagon and chevron. I’ll be teaching best practices for both clamped and tied bindings. Ill be discussing pre and post treatments for fabrics. I’ll be providing a cotton bandana to each attendee to begin with and I encourage everyone to bring a lightweight, reasonably sized item or two (t-shirt, skirt, top, button-down or fabric piece) to fold and dip.

I’m also generally available following the workshop to discuss any indigo-related questions anyone may have and to share resources if I’m personally unable to assist.

Sign up for the workshop here:

    Hi Deb,

    I’d like to sign up for this class, but I’m having a horrible time figuring out where “Fort Lonesome” is located in Austin. It is not anywhere on their website, FB, ….

    Do you have any idea where it is?

      Here’s Graham’s reply to that question:
      The location of the venue is withheld at the request of the host but I can say that it is in East Austin near Springdale and E 5th St.

      The exact address will be emailed to the attendees prior to the event, both seedling sign ups and workshop attendees.

    I signed up for this! Anybody want to meet before for dinner? I’m coming from Dripping Springs, so I’ll definitely be driving in early to beat traffic.
