Duration: 2-2.5 hours

New York, NY 10001


In this workshop we guide you to dip your own garments in beautiful blue and give them new lives. You will learn basic shibori (tie-dye) and itajime (wood-clamping) pattern making on garments and how to dye them in Yamato Indigo, a natural-blend indigo dye from Japan.  

Bring 2 pieces of small cotton, linen or silk garments, home linens or fabrics. Each piece should be smaller than a T-shirt. No large items cannot be dyed at this workshop. No wool or synthetic material please.

You will go home with freshly dyed, wet garments (plastic bags are available). We will give you 100ml of Yamato Indigo Dye Fixative and instructions for post-dye treatment at home. Additional Yamato Indigo Dye, supporting dye supplies and white dyeables from Japan will be available for purchase 15% off at the workshop.

Please arrive on time wearing something you don’t mind getting indigo stains on, including shoes. We have aprons for use in studio. No food is allowed at group workshops. 

Suggested Items To Bring: 
Short sleeve T-shirts
Table napkins and mats
Standard size pillow cases  

For best dyeing outcomes: 
Used, vintage garments generally dye better. Pre-washing is recommended for brand-new items. For never-washed canvas, be sure to boil the items for 15 to 20 minutes, rinse well and dry before class.

Thinner fabrics are better suited for creating intricate shibori patterns. You can bring poly or nylon-mixed cotton items but it may dye lighter.  Rayon and tercel can be dyed. 100% poly or nylon or wool cannot be dyed. If you are unsure about what to dye, bring several options. We will consider them together and select the best items to dye.
