1-Day Workshop | Upcycled Indigo Dyeing

*Price includes a $60 Studio Fee for all materials provided.

Course Description:

Do you have old t-shirts, socks, bandanas, or pillow covers shoved in a corner of your closet?

Instead of throwing those away, you can transform the old garment with natural indigo dye at this workshop. Students will learn about the art of indigo dyeing and how to make natural indigo vats using fructose sugar, henna and iron ferrous sulfate. We will explore making various resist patterns including Japanese techniques, Shibori and Ita-jime.

What to Expect:

Inspiration will be taken from the museum’s Thread Studio, textile collection on view, and European Art Before 1800. Students will work with 2 plant-based textile garments to for the indigo dyeing process. (See Materials for specific requirements of used garments.) Make sure to wear something you don’t care to get indigo splashed on. No previous experiences necessary at all.

Class Cancellation Policy:

If a class or workshop needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather or teacher illness, a “make-up” day will be scheduled on a SATURDAY as the educator’s schedule allows.

Materials:

All materials are included in the price of the class and will be provided to students at the beginning of class. Students can bring 2 used garments, which should be plant based natural fibers such as cotton, linen, soy, rayon or ramie. Size and weight of the garment you can bring to the class are limited due to the size of the indigo vats. Each garment should be less than 150gm/5.3oz and smaller than approximately 25” x25”. The garments have to be pre-washed before coming to the class.

Educator:

Maki Teshima is a natural dye fiber artist and owner of Tomorrow Is Always New studio. She creates one of a kind, eco-conscious hand dyed products and artworks. Born and raised in Japan. She learned natural dyeing techniques at the Fashion Institute of Technology, the Textile Art Center in New York, and private studios in Kyoto, Japan. She actively organizes natural dyeing workshops and teaches as a mentor at Textiles MFA, Parsons School of Design. In 2021, she relocated to Denver, Colorado after living in New York City for 15 years where she worked as a textile surface designer for various fashion companies. tomorrowisalwaysnew.com

Spring Course 2024: Why Do We Art? Exploring the Role Art Plays in Our Lives

We take art for granted but what purposes does it serve? What roles does it play in our lives and societies and, if these have changed over time, how? In this three-session course, join Giulia Bernardini, art historian and founder of art travel company Wonderfeast, to explore the place art occupies in our world and what the questions we ask about it ultimately tell us about ourselves. With the gallery as our playground, optional reading and viewing materials at hand, and lively group discussion, this participatory experience will leave attendees with a new perspective on the question: Why Do We Art?

Giulia Bernardini holds master’s degrees in art history and in museum studies and is a regular guest lecturer on Italian Renaissance and Baroque art as well as the Parisian Belle Époque. She is the founder of Wonderfeast, a boutique art travel company that specializes in unforgettable on-site seminars in her native Europe for small groups of inquisitive art-, food-, and culture-lovers.
