Instructor: Sarah Westrup
Participants will learn how to make an organic indigo vat from scratch using indigo, iron, and lime. Titled the mineral vat, this indigo recipe produces beautiful blues exclusively on cotton fibers. All participants will explore clamping and tying & dyeing techniques to create free formed resisted patterns. Instructor will also demonstrate how to mix a clay resist paste that can be painted on fabric to prevent indigo dye from penetrating designed areas.
