Celebrating the visual languages of PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, CULTURE, and ENVIRONMENT through the global practice of resist-dye traditions and innovations, keeping in mind authenticity, reciprocity, and networking.
LongRidge Farm, Westmoreland, NH
10 pole-wrapped resist techniques, taught over the course of 3 days, using indigo and woad. A 3-day workshop focusing on the use of indigo with pole-binding (think arashi shibori) producing a set of results to feed a lifetime of creative pursuit. This class will focus on 3 preparations of indigo vats (including woad), that will give the student an array of pole binding techniques to use as compositional tools in their studio work. Among the 10 demonstrations of pole wrapping, we’ll look into compound shaped-resist processes that put together sewing and pole wrapping for a unique and beautiful outcome. Students will be led through the construction of all 3 indigo vats—from the large (30 gallon) reduction vat used at room temperature, to the small individual indigo and fructose vats that each pair of students will share.
