Event Details

Crafternoons are back at Nanaimo Museum! On Saturday, June 8, 2024 from 10am-3pm, join textile artist Yarrow Aiko Koontz for a workshop on indigo dyeing. Yarrow will teach resist techniques called Shibori (Japan), and talk some of the history of this amazing plant dye. Indigo can trace its roots from early archaeological sites from Peru to Africa, India, and Asia. Its colour embodies pure alchemy: it magically turns from green to blue when introduced to oxygen!

Each participant will go home with a beautiful organic cotton mull scarf they’ve dyed during the workshop.

Tickets cost $90 per person and include all materials. Space is limited, so register soon!
