Renew your clothing with 100% natural indigo dyeing, block printing, and hand stitched patching. Learn how to mask a stains, decorate fabric with block printing, and use simple stitches to strengthen and repair a garment that shows how much you love it.

The women behind small biz, Better Than Jam & Miniature Rhino, are on a mission to help you renew your wardrobe.  Fix, refresh and repair items in your closet that you've torn, stained, or want to be excited to wear again.

In the morning, with Karin of Better Than Jam, you will learn to use Indigo dye, by creating a jar starter and dipping either a garment or patches. Indigo is a beautiful blue that has captivated the world for thousands of years, and you’ll be sure to understand why after this special experience. Then, we'll block print fabrics with textile ink that's sure to last. Use this technique to cover stains on your garment or fashion a patch. 

After break Jessica of Miniature Rhino will demonstrate several patching techniques and stitching methods that can be used to repair damage, cover stains or embellish your clothing. Upcycled patching materials will be provided. If there is a specific fabric you’d like to use, feel free to bring it to class.
