The Indigofera plant is fascinating with it’s alchemy, and is revered and coveted by cultures all around the globe for it’s intensely deep, rich colours and protective, even spiritual qualities. In our workshop, we are going to be working with the most unique and oldest plant dye pigment in the world - Indigo - in a contemporary way using the 1,2,3 fructose sugar vat.

In this workshop you will be creating and designing with organic Indigo Dye & Shibori Designs on your own shawl + Furoshiki wrapping cloths - a traditional Japanese technique to package and transport gifts - as a sustainable alternative to wrapping paper! The wraps are a beautiful and environmentally friendly way to gift-give, and can be used over and over again for other occasions.

The day will begin with learning about indigo as one of the oldest plant dye methods in the world, it's lineage, brief history and a discussion of it’s importance in cultures around the globe. We will address issues and challenges around sustainability, chemical dyeing, cultural loss, as well as explore our connection back to Earth.

We will then design our own dyed projects using a natural fructose indigo vat and apply several basic and beautiful Shibori techniques to their indigo pieces.

Participants will learn how to use the indigo vat to achieve different shades of blue, and will leave with an understanding of indigo dyeing as well as their own finished Furoshiki piece and shawl, ready to use for gift-giving.

This workshop uses a chemical-free and all-natural dyeing process.

Spaces limited to 12 participants.
