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

Artful Living: Embracing Nature - 5/19

Artful Living brings art into our everyday lives. In this workshop, experience Biophilia: Nature Reimagined with the body, senses, and imagination. Spend time in the exhibition with Donna Mejia (CU theater professor and Renée Crown Wellness Institute faculty fellow), interacting with artworks through mind and body. Then, join Quána Madison (multi-disciplinary artist, healing arts workshop facilitator, and well-being advocate) in the studio for a hands-on artmaking activity (no arts experience necessary). Along the way we’ll ask: What is the language of our bodies? How do our bodies encounter nature? How can we rethink our relationship with nature? How does nature inspire us?

Berger Talk: Tim Clayton

Join us for a presentation by Tim Clayton who will talk about his 2023 Berger Prizewinning book, James Gillray: A Revolution in Satire.

James Gillray (1756-1815) was late Georgian Britain’s funniest, most inventive and most celebrated graphic satirist and continues to influence cartoonists today. His brilliant drawing, matched by his flair for clever dialogue and amusing titles, won him unprecedented fame as a political satirist; his sophisticated designs parodied artists of the day such as William Hogarth and Joshua Reynolds, while he borrowed and wittily redeployed celebrated passages from William Shakespeare and John Milton to send up politicians in an age – as now – where society was fast changing, anxieties abounded, truth was sometimes scarce, and public opinion mattered.

Tim Clayton’s definitive biography explores Gillray’s life and work through his friends, publishers – the most important being women – and collaborators. Clayton’s compelling narrative reveals the tensions between artistic independence, financial necessity and the conflicting demands of patrons and self-appointed censors in a time of political and social turmoil, also recreating the networks that invented satirical prints and the emerging markets for them.
