Indigo 102 : Rice Paste Resist Printing and Dyeing
At Marshfield School of Weaving : 334 Jake Martin Road Marshfield, Vermont 05658
Wednesday August 14 through Friday August 16, 2019
Indigo only dyes what it can touch! In this workshop students will learn to create a resist paste from rice flour. This paste will be applied onto fabric by brush, stencil and screen. Wherever the paste is applied, the fabric will remain un-dyed while the rest of the piece absorbs color. Students will explore layering prints to create different tones of blue and will practice the challenging and subtle techniques of dipping printed pieces and maintaining the health of an indigo vat. This type of pattern making appeals and rewards those interested in graphic design, patience, control and attention to detail.
