Workshops for 2017

 

 

 

May 27th - Drop In and Dye day

This day is exactly what it says.  Drop in and bring a thing or two or three to dye in the indigo vat.  Bring old jeans, tee shirts, dresses, skirts, napkins or other table linens to brighten them up and give them a new life!  It's a perfect way to re-purpose old clothes. Everything needs to be a natural fiber, polyester and synthetic fibers won't take the indigo. This is a lot of fun and children are welcome! The hours are from 10am-3pm with a one hour break from 12-1 in order to give the vats a chance to rest.
