Learn about the magic of indigo, its plant sources and how to make and maintain a 1-2-3 fermentation vat. Starting with fresh leaf Japanese indigo dyeing on silk scarves, we will then create an organic vat with powdered indigo to do simple shibori resist techniques on a cotton bandana. Learn about the process of growing Japanese indigo, which will grow in our northern climate.
