INDIGO DYEING WORKSHOPS IN TEXTILES 2022
These events are organized by KOKORO Índigo Culture, the first Indigo garden in the Basque Country, dedicated to promoting slow and sustainable textile dyeing in the town of Sopuerta (Bizkaia)https://www.indigoshademap.org
Our goal is to work with local communities, and for this space to function as an educational garden and workshop to learn how to grow, mine and dye indigo.
We promote sustainable textile practice through practical experiences.
The workshops are especially aimed at people who have not had contact with natural dyes before and people who are curious to learn how a dye plant orchard works.
Apart from this, advanced training is offered for people who want to go deeper and/or who already have experience in dyeing. Ask us!
PROJECT: Green is the new Blue
Do you grow indigo or intend to grow it?
We propose a workshop where you will learn to work making vats with your own indigo
Price/person €35 (minimum group 2 people)
Duration: 4 hours
We will make two organic vats with fresh leaves and another with dry leaves to dye precious shades of blue, recreating ancient dyeing methods that are the basis for understanding how indigo vats work.
These are dyeing methods that you will be able to do at home in the future without having to buy pigment from suppliers. We’ll dye some samples that you can take home.
Bring clothes that can get dirty and water and a picnic lunch!
The workshops do not have fixed dates. For the workshop to take place, a minimum number of people will be necessary (See description of each workshop). As the minimum number is reached, the people who have requested it will be contacted and the date will be set.
The dates for the INDIGO HARVEST will be published on our website www.kokoroindigoculture.com (in the BLOG section) and on instagram @kokoroindigoculture
Once posted, all dates are fixed and we will do our best to keep them, but we reserve the right to change dates for reasons beyond our control such as extreme weather, unforeseen garden issues, or illness.
The workshops will be organized from June to October, while we have the indigo harvest in the orchard.
If you are interested in one of our workshops, write to us at email@example.com and we will send you the registration form, the payment method and we will specify the date.THANK YOU!!!
