Unlike most modern indigo dye vats that are prepared quickly with a chemical reducing agent, this workshop will use only sugar and natural ingredients to activate the indigo dyeing power of our vat. It is based on the traditional vats of Morocco, India and Provence and was developed and revived by Michel Garcia- one of the world’s leading experts on natural dye traditions.

Indigo is unlike any other natural dye process in many ways and the blue color produced is rich, complex and unparalleled in beauty. This dye is perfectly suited for experimenting with shibori- traditional tie, bind  and stitch techniques. I will demonstrate some of my favorites including itajime and arashi. Learn the science behind the nature of indigo while experiencing the alchemistic wonder of it’s transformation from indigo white to blue!

No previous dyeing knowledge necessary. Each participant will leave with various types of indigo dyed fabrics. Each participant may also bring a small or medium sized garment of natural fabric (wool, silk, cotton, linen, hemp, etc.) to dye in the vat.

Each participant will also leave with a resources list and instructional guide on how to repeat the process at home.
