How to Mix a Natural Indigo Vat

  • Tryon Arts & Crafts School 373 Harmon Field Road Tryon, NC, 28782 United States (map)

In this class, I will show you the basics of how to make your own natural indigo vat using just 3 non-toxic ingredients. We will mix the vat and learn how to dye fabric in it. Basic resist techniques for creating designs will be covered. You will leave with a small indigo vat and at least one dyed piece, along with all the information you need to mix up another vat. We will discuss the basic chemistry of indigo, history of the plant, and where indigo fits in our modern world.
