Experience the excitement of dyeing indigo patterns over color. Results can range from dramatic to subtle, with an added bonus when the interaction of indigo and fiber reactive dyes create interesting haloes of color. The class will include instruction on using the dyes as well as shibori techniques with lots of time to experiment. While it is NOT required, students are encouraged to come with a project in mind, such as a wall hanging, quilt, garment or other textile. No experience is necessary; experienced dyers are welcome.


CAROL ANNE GROTRIAN has explored shibori dyeing techniques for more than three decades. The organic patterns of shibori have found a voice in her landscape quilts, providing her with inspiration, challenges, and ideas for more quilts than she has time to make. Indigo dyeing appears often in her work. Her quilts include whole cloth stitched indigo as well as raw edge appliqué and Japanese boro, all of which reflects her love of hand stitching

Carol Anne has taught quilting and surface design techniques for many years. In 2005, she taught at the Sansia Indigo Symposium and Festival in Taipei County, Taiwan. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, and has quilts in corporate, private and museum collections. Her work has also been featured in many publications, including Textiles: The Art of Mankind. Her studio is in her home in Cambridge, MA.
