Join local artist Daisy McClellan at Redux Contemporary Art Center for her Indigo Dye for Self Care Workshop. In this class, you’ll learn a new skill while creating items to help you cultivate a self-care routine at home. You’ll learn the fundamentals of using indigo dye from beginning to end and dye a one-size-fits-most robe – perfect for lounging at home or as a coverup at the beach. Additionally, you’ll get practice with various shibori patterns by dying a hand towel that has a multitude of uses. We use ours in the kitchen and bathroom to dry our hands but past students have used it as a wall hanging and to wrap baked goods in an environmentally friendly way! We’ll discuss the history of indigo in South Carolina and then dive into how to create a dye vat and various shibori tie dye methods that reveal beautiful patterns. You’ll go home with a beautiful robe and hand towel custom dyed by you that will give you the inspiration to take time for yourself every day. As a little bonus, we’ll have a bath salt soak bar where you’ll make your own custom blend using Epson salts, sea salt, various essential oils, and dried botanicals to take home.

Beginners are welcome – no experience is required. All materials provided. Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little messy or bring an apron if you have one. This workshop will take place outside weather permitting so please dress appropriately.
