    Dyers have been using indigo to create blue dye for centuries - we will be using a modern recipe for this 100% naturally derived fermentation indigo vat. We will formulate a vat together and utilize shibori techniques on fabric to create surface design before dyeing. Students will leave with a beautifully personal naturally dyed silk scarf and expanded knowledge of the craft.

    Participants should dress for mess and bring their own rubber gloves, aprons, and a plastic bag to transport dyed items. Optional: sewing kit and scissors.



    Shibori-style indigo dyeing is sometimes called Sudoku or Sudou, which means “blue earth” or “blue mud” in Japanese. It involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and binding it before dyeing in indigo. Shibori-style textiles usually feature irregular patterns and contrasting colors that stand out against the indigo background. Bound areas resist the indigo dye, producing blue-and-white patterns when finished.

    Class Cancellations (Weather)
    When Public Schools of Petoskey are closed due to inclement weather, CTAC-Petoskey classes are cancelled. We will do our best to provide a make-up opportunity for the missed class. Refunds will not be given if the student is unable to attend the rescheduled session of class. Workshops and one-time classes will be handled on a per-class basis. School of Ballet students are asked to make up the missed class in an alternate session approved by their instructor.

    Student Absence
    We are unable to offer refunds or make-up sessions for classes missed due to student absence.

    Minimum Enrollment
    Crooked Tree Arts Center reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet its minimum student enrollment prior to the first class session.
