WELCOME to the Indigo Workshop hosted by Frances of Frances Felt. I am very excited to have you join me for this fun, creative and explorative course of INDIGO dyeing. During the 3 hours you will learn the basics of an indigo vat. You will learn the basics of shibori folding which is a Japanese manual resist dyeing technique. You will make a few samples on different types of fabrics (cotton, silk, linen, bamboo) that you will get to take home and hopefully incorporate into your next project! Once you see the results of the samples then you will begin to concentrate your efforts on making your grand finale piece! You can choose a summer scarf, a tea towel and 2 napkins or a cushion case to take home! Coffee, tea and treats will be served. ** Just a note, I am pretty flexible on dates and times. If there is a different time that works for you or a date you are not seeing please message me and I'm sure we can work something out!
After completing my Batchelor of Fine Arts from the Alberta College of Art & Design I returned home to BC to begin my own business designing fabrics and clothing. Since 2003 I have been running my own textile design company. I specialize in felting, dyeing and clothing design. I have sold my clothes and accessories in stores across Canada and have participated in high end craft shows like Toronto's One of a Kind Show and Vancouver's Circle Craft Show. Over the years I have taught felting, printing on cloth and most recently, INDIGO dyeing. Please visit www.francesfelt.com to see my work or follow along on Instagram @francesfelt
Coffee, tea, water and simple snacks will be provided.
All equipment and materials will be provided for you to fully explore the wonders of INDIGO dyeing.
The INDIGO course will be located in my studio in my private residence located just outside the beautiful town of Pemberton. This is the perfect place to be on a cold, snowy or rainy day. My studio space is in my basement, (near the furnace :) equipped with a full dye kitchen as well as a sewing room.
10歳以上の方4名まで参加できます。保護者同伴の2歳未満のお子様も参加可能です。 There are no specific requirements to do this course. Just an open mind! You do not need to be "creative". The process it self is creative. Each bundle is a surprise when you open it and there are no "mistakes"…
Clothes that they don't mind getting dirty.
We have a dog on the property. She is very friendly and exuberant. If you have an aversion to dogs please let me know. I can keep her in a different part of the house during the course. I have a 12yr old daughter who can babysit and would be happy to look after your child if needed.
