It's that time of the year! Time to whittle down your holiday gift checklist! Get your dye on at NUMU's Indigo Dye Night: Holiday Edition, Thursday November 16th, 5:00-8:00pm.
Maximum Participants 12. Pre-register early to ensure a spot in the class. Class fees are non-refundable. This class is suitable for beginners as well as more advanced participants. A no-host wine bar will be provided. $5 per glass.
In this in depth three-hour workshop lead by our expert resident indigo dye artist, Zoë Umholtz, you'll explore the basics of indigo dyeing, including unique techniques for folding, twisting, tying, clamping fabric, creating patterns and varying color depth resulting in designs that are wholly unique to your making. You'll receive one yard of muslin, but we encourage you to bring multiples of un-dyed and pre-washed cotton, linen, silk fabrics, t-shirts, napkins, table linens, scarves, socks, make-up bags, and much more to complete your holiday gift list. The sky's the limit in creating that perfect gift for your special someone, or for yourself. Please wear clothes you don't mind getting messy, as indigo will permanently stain fabrics.
