This is the job offer...sounds like a great opportunity to learn about all aspects of indigo from the ground up while making some money.

I’m looking for someone with a basic knowledge of textiles, fibers, and dyeing who enjoys working with their hands;  is meticulous, thorough, dependable, consistent and patient; and who’s not afraid of being spotted with blue hands!

In other words, I am looking for a part-time studio assistant to help with all aspects of studio work!  Approximately 10-12 hours/week over 3-4 days each week. Responsibilities will include assisting with:
◾cloth preparation (cloth repair, shibori & paste resist)
◾indigo dyeing
◾indigo farming, processing, & vatting
◾basic accounting
◾studio organizing, cleaning, maintenance, etc.
◾packing and shipping
◾basic publicity/promotion/communication
◾occasional weaving

Please send your resume or an email outlining your experience to Rowland Ricketts (rowland@rickettsindigo.com) for consideration.  Must be based in the greater Bloomington area.
