Explore spontaneity, creativity and our innate connection to the divine with an indigo and thread workshop to be held from 9:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. June 30 to July 4.
The workshop will be led by fibre artist Thomas Roach, co-ordinator of a community art project to make and install 25 indigo quilts in the parish hall of Vancouver’s Christ Church Cathedral.
Get your hands deep into a vat of dye and discover the mystery of indigo blue. Experience wonder as the colour appears before your eyes.
Participants will explore simple tie-dye techniques to create a range of patterning, shading and visual texture that will form the basis of a personal prayer cloth that can be further enriched by stitching.
Let your hands and mind work together intuitively – every stitch becoming a prayer.
No previous experience is necessary.
