Description

The one-day Natural Indigo Masterclass, is a full day of exploring indigo as a natural dye, and its relation to denim. During the workshop, we will learn the basics of natural indigo, its history, and some background information. After the theory, we will learn how to make a fresh vat of natural indigo. As soon as the vat is ready, we will do some trial dips on different fabrics. During the trial dips, we will learn the basics of traditional Japanese Shibori – a manual resist dyeing technique that gives beautiful patterns.

After a lovely lunch we will first practice with some samples, before making the final product, using the techniques we have learnt before. The final product can be a scarf, a tote bag or two bandanas to take home after the workshop!
