Ikat, meaning "to bind" in the Indonesian language, is one of the oldest known techniques for creating patterned textiles - as versatile as it is timeless. More info...

Ikat begins off the loom, using a resist-technique to dye yarns prior to weaving. Students will experiment with tightly wrapping a variety of cotton, paper, silk and wool threads in intentional and playful patterns, then dip the bound yarns into indigo vats to create variegated weft material. This weekend intensive, led by educator and textile artist Hannah Watson, will guide students in the art of pattern design and creation through resist-dyeing weft threads, dressing a rigid heddle loom, and creating a finished Ikat weaving.
