The Art of the Vat: Indigo

The Art of the Vat: Indigo


Shibori is an ancient Japanese dyeing technique that typically involves folding, twisting or bunching paper or cloth, then dyeing it in indigo. The results in even the most imperfect patterns and effects—are stunning. 

However, before you can acquire perfection in the mechanics, you’ll need to know how to properly prepare an indigo vat.

During this workshop, you’ll learn how to prepare three different indigo vats, then have some fun dyeing fabric and painting paper with indigo.

Bring a notebook, plastic gloves and clothing and shoes you don’t mind getting permanently soiled.
