The Seminar Room, Block 43 Malan Road

Indigo has fascinated people across ages and cultures, having been attributed mysterious, magical, and medicinal powers. Its fermented dye bath has been used to ward off evil spirits and applied as an antiseptic. This workshop explores how indigo is cultivated, processed, and used in sacred and everyday rituals. Participants will have the opportunity to try several methods of shibori, a Japanese tie-dye technique, to create unique patterns on their cloth. At the end of the workshop, a small amulet or pin will be made from the indigo samples giving a sense of protection and visual pleasure through the beautiful and powerful blues produced by indigo.
