Join local artist Megan Jewel for an Indigo Dye + Shibori Workshop at Miel Brewery + Taproom on Sunday June 9th! Attendees will create their own beautiful hand-dyed textiles during this workshop as Megan teaches the basics of creating shibori patterns with indigo dye.

This event will take place outdoors at Miel Brewery + Taproom. During the workshop, each attendee will be provided 2 tea towels and 1 scarf to dye. You may bring an item of your own to dye if time allows (natural fiber such as cotton or rayon is best). Please do not bring large fabric items like sheets, duvets, or fabric yardage. Please wear clothing and footware that you don't mind getting messy.

Ages 13+. Attendees under 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Each must have their own ticket.

If you are unable to make the event, your ticket may be transferred to another person for this date only. Tickets are non-refundable. This event will be held outdoors. In the event of inclement weather, the workshop will be rescheduled and tickets will be transferred to the raindate.

Shibori is a Japanese term for manual-resist methods used to create patterns on fabric. We will explore techniques using folding, pleating, and binding to create patterns on the provided textiles. Each piece will be dyed in the indigo vat, which produces a bold or subtle blue and white pattern, depending on the material and method used. Because of the handmade and experimental nature of indigo dyeing, results may vary between attendees and from sample textiles shown.
