Spring indigo workshop happening at ARTiculations in the Junction in Toronto

Saturday, April 25, 2015

11:30 – 4:30

Hosted by: ARTiculations – 2928 Dundas St West, Toronto
Cost: $95.00.   Bring a variety of fabrics to experiment with.  Silk scarves and 100% cotton infinity scarves suitable for dying will be available for $10 each. Please wear clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.


Indigo has been used as a dye all over the world  for centuries.  It’s no surprise that the mysteries and magic of indigo have held a special fascination for dyers, no matter their level of experience.  Come spend a day “playing” with indigo and learn more about the principles of Shibori. Through various methods of folding and clamping, binding and stitching, you can create your own unique textiles. Beginners welcome!
