Upcycle with indigo any of your textiles, old or new, that need a boost. The instructor will lead you through creating a synthetic indigo vat and provide tools to create resist patterns on your textiles. Each participant can dye the equivalent of 5 large t-shirts, bearing in mind the textiles must fit in a 5-gallon bucket. Natural fibers like cotton, linen, wool, and silk work best with indigo. Once everyone’s had a turn, you can keep dying until the vat ends.
