Pay-What-You-Wish Community Indigo Dip

December 30 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Navigation

Let’s wind down 2018 by coming together around the indigo vat and celebrating the beauty of blue. Perhaps you have a favorite piece of clothing you would like to dye blue, or you would like to purchase a special piece of cloth from Verb, and have a beautiful inky piece of yardage for a special project in 2019. Whatever you wish, the vats will be ready!

People get a little excited around indigo – so let’s set some ground rules:

1. There will be a demonstration at noon. This will last 10 minutes. Once the demonstration is over, the vats will be turned over to the community. If you come after 12:10, please learn how to use the vats by watching others.

2. Only bring items which are 18″ long x 54″ wide or smaller. You are welcome to bring more than one item, however, please note, this is a very popular event so expect to share the vats 🙂

3. There will be three indigo vats.

4. This event takes place outdoors. Please dress accordingly. In the case of rain, the event will be canceled.

5. At 2:45, we will close the vats. Starting at this time, we will begin cleaning the dye studio and preparing your pieces to bring home.

6. This is a pay-what-you-wish – there will be a donation jar at the front desk. You can either drop in a few bucks there – or you can pay at the register. You are also welcome to come for free. There are many other ways to give to Verb – such as referring us to your family and friends.

Materials included:
+ Indigo dye

Please bring:
+ pre-washed fabric / clothing / yarn approximately 18″ long x 54″ wide and smaller
+ rubber gloves
+ clothes appropriate for the outdoors and able to get dirty

RSVPs are unnecessary, though by doing so, you will help us plan for the event.
