Indigo Dying — Sarah Johnson

Saturday, Workshops Tent


Indigo is an ancient natural dye taken from plants cultivated all over the world. In this blue workshop, you will learn a brief history of Indigo and how to make a basic Indigo vat that has to ferment to produce its incredible colour. We will then have the opportunity to experiment with techniques on cloth to explore the pattern and depth of this magical dye stuff. All ages welcome.

Sarah Johnson is a designer based in Cornwall who works principally with textiles and natural Indigo as well as other natural dyes.
