Event description
Spend three hours with us learning how to make an indigo vat using natural materials.

About this event

During this class we will go through the process of setting up a natural indigo vat using either iron or fruit. There will also be the opportunity to test the two different vats and see the colour differences. At the end of the class you will feel confident enough to experiment at home with your own 2L jar vat - you will leave with all the items you need to start this vat at home including a jar.

Sample pieces of fabric will be provided to try the different vats and various dyeing techniques. All the Indigo we use is produced sustainably and is 100% natural. We also try to source UK grown indigo where possible although as this is a new market stocks can run low before the autumn. If it is the right time of year we will start a fresh woad leaf vat. Woad is the European version of indigo producing plant and grows easily in our climate.

The class is limited to a maximum of 5 people at present and hand sanitizer will be available. We ask that you bring a mask and follow instructions regarding safe covid practice. At present we cannot offer refreshments and ask that you bring a water bottle for your own use with you.

Our studio is based at Hackney Bridge site where there are lots of restaurants and a bar for food and drink post or pre-class.

A great class for beginners and intermediate crafters and natural dyers.

This class is suitable for vegans and uses only sustainably sourced dye stuff.
