Learn about the creation, care and feeding of an indigo vat using pre-reduced indigo. We’ll make the vats together, and then while we are waiting for them to "reduce", we'll discuss the science of what is going on, and how to maintain your vat at home. We'll also introduce some tying and stitching methods borrowed from ages-old shibori traditions. We provide fabric for play, assorted resisting tools and needles and thread, if you'd like to try stitch resist. Please bring one tee-shirt sized, natural fiber item as well. The class fee includes an indigo kit of your very own, to take home with you.
