Indigo Vat Basics

April 7, 2019   10 am – 1 pm – R A W Textiles Studio  – 8536 SE Stark – PDX


This will be the first workshop in my new studio and I am thrilled to share this time and space with you.

An introduction to Indigo is for anyone with a curiosity of natural dyes and the ancient process of Indigo.  No experience necessary.

Rio will create a vat that is non toxic by using a method that was introduced by master dyer Michel Garcia.  The variations of basic ingredients will ensure you can repeat this method on your own.

There will be plenty of cotton and silk sample swatches for you to dip in the dye vat that is created for all to share.  Rio will go over different ways to create pattern such as shibori so you can create a larger sample with fabrics provided.

For registration please visit eventbrite. ( coming very soon)

This event is part of Portland Design Week.
