Potluck and Indigo Dyeing

When: Saturday July 9, 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Where: Member’s house near the Priceville I-65 Exit

Please e-mail to HsvFiber @gmail.com before noon on July 8 to receive directions and to indicate if you will be bringing something to dye.

Bring a dish or dessert to share. Drinks and paper products will be provided.

Bring your latest projects to show them off.

After the lunch inside, we will be able to experiment with a natural indigo pot outside. Those who don’t want to dye can watch from inside. Bring one item to put in the indigo pot and a plastic bag to take home your wet item.  Item needs to be natural fiber, i.e. cotton, wool, bamboo, rayon.  Hobby Lobby has a nice selection of dyeable items. (Perhaps an apron or a T-shirt to protect your clothes at the next dye workshop.  Skeins of yarn up to one pound are okay, too.)  Item needs to be prewashed.  No mordant is needed with indigo.  Instructor will provide some string and a couple of pipes for shiborri.  Or you can pre-tie your shiborri.  There are lots of “how to’s” online for ideas.  Instructor will provide everything for the dye pot and dye gloves.  Wear older clothes or bring some to change into for the dyeing part of the day.  For more information, e-mail HsvFiber @gmail.com.
