August 13+15 - Indigo Dye!
13August

Dress down for this one folks, it may get messy!

This week in the clubhouse we're going to be playing with indigo dye! Once called blue gold, this oldest of dyes was a rare luxury. You are all familiar with the synthetic version of the indigo plant that is used to dye our blue jeans. The natural version of this process holds a little bit of funk and a little bit of magic.

We'll explore some resist methods and some techniques borrowed from the japanese tradition of Shibori, to create patterns on our fabric.

We'll provide the dye bath, gloves and pieces of white cotton muslin. Bring your own white fabric or a t-shirt to dye if you'd like. Make sure it is 100% plant or animal fibers (cotton, silk, wool, etc), no synthetics for this one.

August 17 - Wine Bottle Wednesday!
17August

It's one of our most popular workshops, and because it keeps selling out before you can get your tickets, we're hosting Wine Bottle Wednesdays once a month! Bring some empty bottles and we'll show you how to score, break and polish them into the ultimate upcycled party favor...

We've perfected the method and are ready to teach you - you can expect to leave here with two finished glasses.

August 29- Gold Leaf Taxidermy!
29August

We love shiny things. We can't think of a better or more creative way than a faux taxidermy plaque covered in gold leaf to show that love. Everyone will get a hollow plastic animal and a wood plaque base to create their trophy. Gold leaf is fairly easy to work with, but we'll show you some tips and tricks for successful use. Feel free to bring your own object for your trophy, just make sure it's hollow plastic.
