Introduction to Indigo and Shibori - New Orleans

  • Kate Beck Textiles 2701 Chartres Street New Orleans, LA, 70117 United States (map)

Join us at the beautiful studio of Kate Beck, located in the Marigny, just outside of the French Quarter in New Orleans for a beginner Indigo and Shibori workshop.  

•Learn basics of shibori resist dyeing, with a concentration on folded, tied and clamped resist.
• Dye natural fiber goods in a plant derived indigo vat.
• 2 scarf-sized pieces of linen and small cotton tote will be provided.
• Feel free to bring your own goods to dye, but please avoid bulky pieces (towels, jackets, bedding etc.). Cellulose fibers (cotton, linen, rayon, ramie) accept the color the best. Pre-wash in hot water before the workshop.
• If time and materials allow, more experimental dyeing (paper, wax-resist, yarn, hair) can be done at the end of the workshop.
• Wear old clothing that can be stained. The dye will splash.
• Lunch and drinks provided.
• $100 per student.

Cancellations made within one month of the workshop are refunded only if the spot can be refilled and are at the discretion of the venue and instructor.
