All workshop registrations are non-refundable, unless the class is cancelled by the Festival.

A weekend (3-day) pass to the festival is offered to participants taking a workshop. (limit one pass per person)


We will prepare a chemical indigo vat with dried, locally grown, Persicara Tinctoria (Japanese indigo) leaves. We will prepare the solution together and will then dye samples of wild silk, hemp, wool, cotton and flax. Every step will be carefully explained so you can prepare this vat at home.

What to bring

Paper and pencil for your personal notes. You can bring little pieces of wool of other natural fabric to dye at the end of the workshop. ( only if you want)

Material provided:

Indigo leaves for dyeing and everything we will need for dyeing. Each student received 5 little skeins (coton, linen, silk, wool and hemp) with handouts.
