Description

4 Aug 2018, Sat 02:00 PM - 06:00 PM
The Seminar Room, Block 43 Malan Road

The introductory presentation will revolve around the ancestral past of Indigo and key textiles processes within Southeast Asia. Participants will be introduced to the colour of Indigo—its strong socio-cultural connotations from various cultures around the world and a brief history of its progression from the “colour of the kings” to the “colour of the masses.” The hands-on workshop will allow the participants to explore with a series of resist dye approaches and tools (chanting, copper stamps, and brushes). The understanding of the method of batik, resist dyeing techniques, and the mix of tools offered to participants will allow them a great space for creativity, visual exploration, and experimentation.
