The Shifted Warp Ikat Scarf
Ikat is a revered and exciting resist-dye fiber process resulting in graphically beautiful woven cloth. Ikat wrapped yarns, when dipped in an indigo vat, instantly become timeless, immersed in an ancient partnership between design and color.

This 3-5-day workshop provides instruction in four distinct ikat warp shifting techniques used to create classic patterns and high contrast design in a woven ikat scarf.  Students will learn to build and maintain a fructose reduced indigo vat, dyeing in it throughout the week. This workshop requires experience in winding a warp, warping a loom, and weaving.  Previous dye experience is not necessary.
