    Dyeing with Indigo Workshop

    1-3 PM South Dakota Agricultural Heritage Museum

    A fun, hands on exploration of indigo dyeing. Indigo is magical! Once you see the change from yellow-green to deep blue as the air’s oxygen hits the dye, you’ll be hooked! We’ll focus on several resist techniques, known as shibori, to create stunning designs. Each student will work on 3 small projects, with the option of bringing a one or two of your own natural fiber items (yarn, cotton flour sack cloth dishtowels, baby onesies, etc.) to help use up the dye vat at the end of class.

    For more information or to register go to the class page at the SD Ag Museum.
