Indigo Social (Distance) 

August 19, 2020, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Indigo Social (Distance) 

with Jackie Ottino Graf

Wednesday August 19, 1pm – 4pm *Rain date: Thursday, August 20 

$80 general / $72 members

Ages 12 and up

ABOUT THE CLASS: Indigo is a traditional blue dye used for centuries in many cultures.  In the fun whirlwind of blue, we will learn how to create an indigo vat and how to “read” it for optimum dyeing conditions.  While our vat rests, we will explore some techniques for Shibori dyeing.  Shibori styles all include some sort of resist, to create negative spaces and patterning on cloth.  We will then dip our fibers and unveil the blue!

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Jackie is a Maine based natural dyer who travels extensively (usually) offering informative colorful workshops. She enjoys the science of natural dyeing and is always trying new tricks to coax color out of unassuming plants. When she isn’t working she is knitting sweaters from the sidelines of all the sports her 3 kids play.

Public health and your personal safety is our top priority.  

All in-person Waterfall Arts programs in the summer of 2020 will be held outdoors and physically-distanced. For programs that take pre-registrations online, students will receive advance notice of any materials they are encouraged to bring to the program, for their own use. All programs are being designed such that participants can maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from one another and from the teacher. Masks are required (particularly during times of instruction and discussion) for both instructors and participants, for all programs.

For programs held outside at Waterfall Arts: Open-sided tents will be set up on the lawn to help provide protection from sun and rain. Participants are encouraged to bring their own umbrellas, large hats, or other forms of sun protection. When used, public tables and chairs will be wiped down and sanitized before and after the run of the program. Building access will be provided for participants who need to use the restroom or refill their water bottles (with our no-touch cold water dispenser). Wearing a mask is required when inside the Waterfall Arts building, and hand sanitizer is available in the building as well.
