INDIGO DYE WORKSHIP WAS AWESOME!

 

Laura Gardner returned to Ashantilly Press to teach an Indigo workshop.

 

Ashantilly Press welcomed back Laura Gardner, 2017 Winter Resident and her colleague Anne Cowie for an incredible Indigo Workshop! Using a wax resist, participants placed designs on their papers and then dyed them. After ironing the wax out, students made a 5 signature small book using their newly dyed papers as covers! It was a blast!
