What you'll learn in this dye class:

Learn the traditional art of shibori dyeing with natural indigo dye.

In this class, you'll be shown how to start your own indigo vat and balance it to keep it going. 3-5 folding, wrapping and twisting resist techniques will be demonstrated, and you'll select a few that you're drawn to and dye some of the plain items you have lying around the house!

Please feel free to bring a few items with you to dye. Clean, white or lightly colored natural fibers (such as cotton, silk, or wool) work best. Leave with one-of-a-kind fibers to keep or share! It's always fun to bring in items that you have lying around the home, but we'll have sample materials ready for you to try out all the techniques as well.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.

Absolutely loved this class. It was so informative- we learned about the science and the history behind indigo dying. It was also so fun and we were all so happy with the pieces we left with.

So informative, fun and engaging. We had a great time! Wish the class didn’t wrap up early, but otherwise excellent!!

Great. Balanced with knowledge and instruction of the craft with time to actually create getting your hands dirty and make something. The only reason it does not get 5 stars is the tools provided for the shibori techniques were limited. By the time we were working on our last pieces and wanted to try something different the needed supplies were out.
