In this workshop you will learn about one of the most fascinating of natural dyes, Indigo. This stunning blue dye is derived from the leaves of the indigofera tinctora plant. Participants will prepare a silk scarf using some shibori techniques, (tieing, sewing, and folding the cloth) to create a resist. When the scarf is dipped into the large vat, watch the dye change colour from green to blue as it oxidizes in the air.
