Making & Using an Organic Indigo Vat + Shibori – 15th Aug


This evening class with Babs Bahan of Botanical Inks will show you how to set up your own organic indigo vat and use shibori tie dyeing techniques, to up-cycle your own items.

Firstly, you will receive some theory and guidance in setting up the organic indigo vat, using just 3 simple natural ingredients – fructose, indigo and lime. You will learn how to tend the vat to keep it balanced and how to use it for shibori tie-dyeing cloth. You will be shown a few simple shibori tie dye techniques to fold and bind your own small garments or items (A 100% natural fibre small vest or lingerie is perfect – nothing too big, heavy or fluffy), to up-cycle with this beautiful mystical blue colour.

You will leave with a good understanding of how to set up and use an indigo vat for yourself, do shibori tie-dyeing and continue your practice from home using simple kitchen equipment.
