Dye a cotton bandana with Yamato Indigo, then make it original with the basses (discharge) pattern making technique.

The class will start with dyeing a bandana with Yamato Indigo, natural-blend indigo from Japan. While waiting for the bandana to dry, you will cut stencil paper with your original design, then print on the scarf with discharge paste. You will go home with a 50 x 50 cm (19.7 x 19.7 inches) indigo bandana with your original design.
