Indigo is one of the oldest dyestuffs known. It has been used for thousands of years and has a fascinating history. The process for extracting blue from the indigo plant is unlike that used for other dyes, and indigo blue is like no other blue. In this workshop we will also explore top-dyeing to produce greens and purples. Join us in learning how to create these rich, luminous and very fast colours on wool and other fibres.
