Description

The 3 hour ‘Introduction to Indigo’ Workshop is a fun and creative way to explore indigo as a natural dye. During the workshop, we will briefly go through the basics of natural indigo, its history, and some background information. We will also learn what a vat of natural indigo consits of, and how dipping and dyeing actually works.

After the theory, we will learn the basics of traditional Japanese Shibori – a manual resist dyeing technique that gives beautiful patterns. We will dye a few samples of different types of fabrics, which will hopefully be incorporated into future projects. After the samples, we will concentrate on making the final product, which can be a scarf, a tote bag or two bandanas to take home after the workshop!
