Experimental Indigo: Shibori & Wax Resists with Aaron Sanders Head
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Aaron Sanders Head
Join Aaron Sanders Head, Alabama-based visual artist, for an Advanced Indigo and Shibori workshop. Participants will learn to create their own plant-based indigo dye vat using ferrous iron, as well as how to create patterns using wax resist, stitch resist and pole-wrapping techniques. All materials will be provided, and participants are encouraged to bring their own small, natural fiber items to dye if time allows. Students will leave with dyed cotton fabric, along with a handout detailing the dye process and basics of an indigo dye vat.
Ideal for those with previous natural dye or shibori knowledge. Open to students 16 & up.
