We have a couple of spots left in our 3 Day Indigo Workshop #1 with Aboubakar Fofana.
This workshop focuses on powdered indigo and setting up a fructose vat using entirely non-chemical and environmentally (and skin!) friendly techniques. Unlike indigo leaves, powdered indigo is quite easy to source, and the fructose vat is also relatively straightforward to put together and to use. This workshop will explain the unique chemistry of indigo, principles of setting up and caring for a fructose vat, as well as choice and preparation of the textile to be dyed. Over three days, participants will be shown how to prepare powdered indigo and how to set up the dye-vat, dye a set of samples, and work on a larger project with Aboubakar’s assistance.
This workshop will also include an introduction to simple shibori and resist-patterning techniques which are suitable for use with indigo. Participants will come away with enough knowledge to set up their own vats and start working with indigo, as well as a deeper understanding of how indigo works and how to achieve the best colour-fast, light-fast and even results with this ancient and singular dye-stuff.

Indigo is one of the oldest and most magical of all the natural dyes. It is the color of the sky and the sea, and in many cultures indigo-dyed cloth was considered sacred and precious. As we become more and more conscious of what we wear and where it comes from, plant-based, non-chemical indigo dye is experiencing a resurgence. This dyestuff is Aboubakar Fofana’s particular passion, and he has a vast store of knowledge on its provenance, usage, and of course, practical applications.
