About your host

I hold an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art and my work has been shown internationally. I focus on the intersection of art and craft, my primary mediums are fibers, glass, and clay. I also co-founded a local co-op gallery which recently opened called Carnation Contemporary (www.carnationcontemporary.com), and have a dynamic studio practice of my own: www.carolynhopkins.com

What we’ll do

Welcome to my backyard farm and studio! We'll be making tote bags and scarves using a traditional indigo dye bath. You will learn shibori and batik wax-resist techniques in order to create patterns on your naturally dyed indigo pieces. I'll walk you through the process of how indigo works, its history, as well as various applications as a dye, and you will leave with some one of a kind items made…

What else you should know

You will need to get yourself to / from my studio.

What I’ll provide

Tea and coffee
Dye baths and fabric.
Please wear clothes you don't mind spilling dye on, as well comfortable shoes.

What to bring

Comfortable shoes for standing in
Clothing that you don't mind getting dye on (unlikely, but could happen)
