MARCH 11 Indigo + woodblock workshop

MARCH 11 Indigo + woodblock workshop



Students will initially learn how a non-fermented indigo vat is made. Natural East Indian indigo powder will be used, and the vat will be ‘reduced’ using a commercially available agent (theox). Students will then dye either a set of napkins, a scarf or linen. When the fabric is washed and dry, the fun will begin with stamping all sorts of fun Indian woodblock designs with screen printing ink. You will enjoy the surprise of seeing everyone's unique creations and go home with your own.
