The Art of Indigo Workshop

May 20 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$30.00

Trinity Mercantile and Design will host an Indigo Dyeing Workshop on Saturday, May 20th. Space is limited! To reserve your spot, RSVP to kate@131trinity.com. Cost is $30 per person and includes instruction, materials and refreshments.

Event details: Indigo is among the oldest dyes to be used for textile dyeing and printing – dating back 6,000 years to the ancient civilizations of South America, Africa and the Middle East. This timeless dye is responsible for the original denim and it’s also a hot trend in the converging worlds of fashion and design.

You’re invited to experience this ages-old village tradition for yourself at Trinity’s Art of Indigo Workshop on May 20th. Guest artist Mollie Coffin of Jaipur Living, along with the team from Trinity, will teach hands-on techniques for creating beautiful designs on fabric. Each participant will create a one-of-a-kind piece to take home. Choose from a scarf, pillow or hobo bag, made from recycled natural fibers.

Come anytime between 12pm – 4pm and plan to spend about an hour creating your piece. All proceeds will benefit the Jaipur Rugs Foundation and re:loom.

Jaipur Rugs Foundation is a non-profit that supports artisan communities in India that seek to preserve this timeless craft and sustain economic independence. re:loom is a local Decatur organization that employs and empowers homeless and low-income individuals to create beautifully-designed products.

Indigo: What’s old is new again.
