What will you learn?
In this class, participants will learn how to set up two types of natural indigo vats, the fruit vat and the ferrous vat. We will cover the history of Indigo in India, how to be conscientious when sourcing this and other dyes, using natural indigo for a range of projects on paper and cloth, reviving the vat for re-use over a long period, as well as safe disposal of the vat after you are finished with it. This class will not cover shibori or resist-dyeing in detail, but will provide general information and resources on these techniques.

The class will be held over the weekend for two days, 2 hours on Day 1, and 1 hour on Day 2. Class starts at 4 pm Norway time (CEST).
