Registration includes a $22 materials fee to cover consumable materials provided in class, including indigo dye, soda ash, pvc pipe, twine, and bags for transporting dyed pieces. Students should also gather/purchase the following items for class:

  • Notepad and pen for taking notes
  • At least 12 pieces of 100% cotton or linen fabric. Picking up a few yards of cotton muslin from a fabric store is the most economical choice.
