Natural Indigo Dye Workshop

Interested in the fascinating history and process of natural Indigo dyeing? Have a garment or fabric yardage that you would like to dye a beautiful organic blue hue?

Join Yumuko Workshop and Plant Chicago at The Plant for a Natural Indigo Dye Workshop!

This two-hour workshop begins with a discussion on the history and practice of indigo dyeing. You’ll have the opportunity to tie, fold, and/or twist your piece into a unique resist. As dyeing begins, we’ll play a partner game asking participants to consider concepts in sustainability and fashion. You’ll leave with a beautiful remade indigo garment/textile and enhanced knowledge of sustainability!

All dye ingredients will be provided, but please bring your own cloth or garment to dye.

Class cost is $35 per person. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Contact Liz Lyon at for details.
