NIKI LIVINGSTON

The first rug of the series is off the loom and ready for finishing work. There is no dye work involved, the colors are naturally occurring on the Alpaca, Llama and Icelandic Sheep. All of the fiber in this piece is locally sourced within my fibershed from The Ranch of the Oaks. This rug will be available for purchase soon.

The single cloth Jittoku jacket study

NIKI LIVINGSTON

I will be taking orders for another round of single cloth study of the Jittoku jacket. The jackets will be cut from a single piece of cloth, no pattern pieces. They will be created simply by cutting into the fabric and draping on the body. Each piece will be made to order with french seaming all hand dyed in true natural indigo. Shibori pattern will vary and can be determined when ordering. Contact me if you would like to make an order.

Handwoven Rugs

NIKI LIVINGSTON

I'm beginning work on the first of a series of handwoven locally grown and spun rugs. The weft yarn is grown and spun just north of Santa Barbara by The Ranch of the Oaks. The yarn is made up of Alpaca, Llama and Icelandic sheep. It is so fabulously soft and wonderful.

Natural Indigo 101 :: Making an organic indigo vat & learning to dye

NIKI LIVINGSTON

Saturday July 11 11-4pm                                                                                                               Space for 9

Announcing a new workshop! Taking it back to the basics... I will be teaching a day long class focusing on learning about true indigo. We will learn to create natural organic indigo stock solutions with food grade ingredients,  without using toxic chemicals, synthetic indigo or chemically reduced crystals.

We will also work through all of the steps necessary for successful dyeing results. There will not be any focus on shibori for this class. This time will be set aside for those of you who want a deeper understanding of true indigo. Please bring two small items to practice your dyeing technique.

We will spend the day immersed in the patience, reverence and diligence that is necessary for creating an indigo vat and the learn about entire indigo dyeing process.

There is so much misinformation out there these days about what natural indigo is and what it is not. This workshop is a step towards helping to clear the confusion away and remove toxic chemicals from the process.

I will have drinks and snacks, but feel free to bring a lunch
The fee is $150
