Astoria — Artist Iris Sullivan Daire is presenting an Indigo Resistance workshop as part of the HiiH Lights Fall Class Series from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at HiiH Lights, 89120 Lewis and Clark Road.

Students will learn basic itajime shibori techniques to create patterns on cotton cloth by first folding and clamping, and then immersing the cloth in a natural indigo vat made from indigo grown here on the North Coast.

For those interested, there is a second act at 5 p.m. that includes a simple farm-to-table meal followed by a documentary film about the history of indigo at 6 p.m. This film is different than the one shown in 2017.

Sign up for the class ($45), the film viewing ($10) or the package that includes class + supper + film ($65) by contacting kestrel@hiihlights.com or iris@dreambirdstudio.com. Sign up with a friend and receive a little extra gift.
