Event Details


Indigo Dyeing has been utilized across the world for thousands of years. The indigo plant makes a variety of shades of blue, commonly associated with denim. In this four hour workshop you will learn Shibori, the Japanese tradition of folding and manipulating fabrics to make intricate patterns, along with the history and process of indigo dyeing. Students leave the class with several dyed garments like napkins, table cloths, or scarves and the knowledge to continue indigo dyeing from their own home.


Amanda Rouse Letscher specializes in pattern design and printmaking with a cartoon surrealist style. Her artwork is inspired from the fractal patterns of nature, chance, fictitious animals, Surrealism, and Art Nouveau. She loves visiting new places, spontaneous drawing, everything aquatic, and has a strong passion for teaching others to create art and have fun. Amanda teaches indigo dyeing, marbling, monoprinting, and acrylic painting classes in San Diego.
