Indigo workshop – Vivienne Prideaux – September 2017

Vivienne Prideaux organised an indigo dyeing workshop earlier this year and kindly agreed to return to help us again.  We now have our own indigo vat which Ann S is keeping at her house so watch this space, lots of hours of fun ahead. 

We dyed a variety of fabrics and threads using samples created in March with resist.  During the morning Vivienne suggested we prepare some shibori samples and Maria made an interesting resist using screws – I wonder how it will turn out?  We returned home with our samples and told to wait as long as possible before washing out.  Below are some photos taken during the day including one of Tiger who was very interested in what was going on.  Good job he did not go too near the vat!  Thank you Ann for a super day.
