Printing with Resists and Indigo with Jane Deane

March 23 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm GMT


Join us for a day of Printing with Resists and Indigo with expert natural dye tutor Jane Deane

Jane will guide us through the process of making natural resist pastes and printing them onto cotton fabric with blocks and found items. The process of dipping in indigo will reveal the shapes that we’ve created. This is an utterly absorbing process, where we explore the ‘what if’ question with different shapes and the number of times the fabric is dipped into the magic of an indigo vat. Will you choose a repeating pattern dipped enough times to create a dark blue? Or a single motif with a gentle pale blue? Organic shapes or geometric? So many choices!

If you’ve never tried printing or indigo dyeing before, you will be in for a treat, but equally if you have some experience and want to enjoy a day of play and experimentation this is a workshop not to miss.

The cotton material and all the dyes will be provided, but you may want to search your house for interesting items to print with.

A lovely Loom Shed lunch will be provided during the day, as will plenty of tea, coffee and sweet treats.
