Katazome with Indigo Dyeing

I taught a workshop of "Master Class", Katazome with Indigo Dyeing at Arrowmont (TN) in September 2016.   People come from various back grounds and they are young to matured in age.  Adult workshop is wonderful because we all share with our life experiences in class.  A student always something to tell a story about her life.  It makes the class richer!!! 
Drying indigo dyed fabrics on campus at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. (TN)

We designed, cut stencils, cooked rice paste, prepared fabric on table. (student: Selene Jarvis) 

The stencil paper can be used overall pattern.  Almost dried rice pase on fabric.  (student: Jan Quarles)

Then put rice paste through cut-out stencils.  (student: Phyllis Miller)
 Dipped in to indigo dye vat.  Remove rice paste (it is water soluble, easy to wash off).  CRIT/ We enjoyed show & tell.   (student: Kimberly Washburn)

Students accomplished designs even such a short period of time.  (student: Chara Jarvis)
