Join us for Ikat Dyeing with Ghislaine Chock.

An ancient textile practice, ikat is simply a method of wrapping bundles of warp or weft threads with tape to resist the effects of the dye. Tie dyeing if you will, but in this Ikat Adventure you’ll be tying warp threads before the cloth is woven on a loom. The more you tie, the more elaborate and colorful your patterns will be when they emerge from different botanical dye pots. Then you’ll set up your loom at home for a plain weave silk and linen scarf and weave a spectacular creation. 

There will be an additional $40 supply fee payable to the instructor which includes: silk and linen yarns, plastic tape, tannins, mordants, and botanical dyes.

What to Bring:

  • $40 Supply fee
  • Dyeing supplies: apron, dyeing gloves, two one-gallon buckets (Later in course)
  • 12 - One gallon storage, slider plastic bags
  • Scissors
  • Tape measure
  • Notebook and pen
