Pattern Making With Indigo Dye

About Pattern Making With Indigo Dye

Please note that this is an online workshop.

In this 4 weeks workshop online live on zoom (recorded for late review) you will learn how to create an Indigo Ferrous vat using the original 1900 recipe. Over the 4 weeks you will be taught how to maintain it and we will have trouble shooting sessions, and you will learn a variety of resist techniques to create some prints on cellulose material (I suggest cotton and linen).

This workshop will take place online on zoom on a weekly basis from the Sunday 7th of April 2024 at 4pm UK time (3 hours but be aware we are processed driven and we can go over if many live questions are asked). It will be recorded and the recording will be shared with the participants together with a set of instructions to keep. I make the videos available for 2 years minimum.

Between sessions you will have access to a FB group where different groups of Indigodyers/printers are interacting. It is a small international group and it is a great place for you to share results and interact with others.

Over the 4 weeks we will:
Learn how to set up a ferrous vat, and how Indigo works. I will show you how to dye with your vat and how to trouble shoot with it.
Learn to select and prepare fabric to dye.
Learn to prepare and use a Soya resist paste to create prints.
Learn how to prepare and use Batik wax in a brushed organic technique.
Learn to neutralise and finish your pieces.

At the end of the workshop you will have:
One new vat technique A selection of artwork on fabric and basic knowledge on how to use the resists techniques for you to experiment further.
A good understanding about how Indigo works.

The workshop is led by Elisabeth Viguie Culshaw from #Theindigoplot an Award winning dye garden in the Glasgow Botanical garden. She is dye educator who works with Indigo both fresh leaves and pigment. She runs a sustainable studio in Glasgow and both research and teaches Indigo dyeing. In the summer she grows Indigo and Woad in Glasgow and should you want to be involved in 2024 send her an email request. bettysbeautifullife@gmail.com Her work can be seen on www.instagram.com/bettysbeautifullife/

This event is suitable for beginners... we all have to learn to walk before we run. I will not teach the geometrical piece here but I will give you the tools and techniques and more importantly my tips to make your own creative one.
