Indigo, the King of Blues, and until the early 20th Century the only blue, is still the only natural blue that will withstand any considerable amount of time. Dating back to the third millenium BC, the dye was highly prized and remnants of indigo-dyed fabric have been found in Egyptian tombs. The process of dyeing has remained essentially unchanged since ancient times, yet most people still have an indigo-dyed garment hanging in their closets today.
The tuition includes a materials fee of $35. We will provide everything you need from gloves to protect your hands to items to dye including a tea towel, a triangular scarf (great for pets!), an infinity scarf (for you) and fabric for making your own 18" square pillow. Students are invited to bring their own white 100% cotton t-shirts or other white natural fabrics to dye in the indigo vats. All skill levels welcome!
Catherine Rodgers' formal education includes a Master of Business Administration, but she's always been a painter at heart. Her recent exhibitions include the Arkansas Arts Center's 55th Annual Delta Exhibition, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock's Erudite Exhibition, and the Inaugural Exhibition of the Mississippi River Museum. Her paintings are held in hundreds of private and business collections in Arkansas and across the United States. Catherine has been teaching at the Arkansas Arts Center since 2012 and her classes include color theory and Shibori scarves. Catherine also teaches art classes at Rancho la Puerta Resort and Spa in Tecate, Mexico and continues her formal studies in pursuit of a Master of Arts.
