My samples from the indigo workshop


These were the samples I made while demonstrating different mark making techniques. I used previously dyed fabrics.


Triangle fold

This one was triangle fold on the left, gathered stitched in an S shape in the middle and right edge scrunched into a point and wrapped with thread.

Arashi Shibori (gathered and wrapped on a PVC pipe)

scrunched into a ball and held in place with elastics


My sister made this with a brush and potato masher and hot soy wax (batik)


Ikea chip clips


Idea stolen from Laura Kemshalls Instagram post. Wooden hearts used as a resist

Pink fabric and round plexi discs used as a resist

a few marbles


Vent pipe


My sister made this with a stamp and hot soy wax (batik)


I tried to no avail to use the heart shaped wooden blocks as a reist. The fabric was treated and I hadn't washed it in advance. It was also a pretty heavy canvas. The indigo just wouldn't penetrate.

  2. Nice results--gotta love that dryer vent hose! I thought I was the only one who had dyed pieces that I couldn't imagine using....
