We are using the Jacquard Indigo Dye Kit
Indigo Dyed Fabrics
Yellow Bucket: Clamped fabrics soaked in water
White Bucket: Indigo Dye Vat
Red Basket: Indigo Dyed Fabrics oxygenating
When the fabrics are removed from the dye vat,
the oxygen turns them from

on a large pvc pipe...
Kathi's fabrics....turning blue

The center fabric is a shibori wrapped and dyed piece.
We had a yard full of FUN!
Tongs work great to remove the fabrics
from the Indigo Dye vat
Nancy is holding her fabric under the dye...
the fabrics tend to float!
Beth removes her shibori piece from the vat...
notice it is green.
The fabrics come out green,
then turn blue when exposed to oxygen.
Beth rinses her Indigo dyed shirt
Kathi rinses her clamped fabric...
Popsicle sticks clamped on triangle folded fabric,
created this pattern.

Kathi over-dyed this screen printed bird
in the indigo vat.
The dyed fabrics really piled up
as the day went on...
