Experience the healing components found in ritual traditions. By exploring artistic techniques used in contemplative meditation practice, you will discover the mysterious, magical, and medicinal powers of natural dyes.
This workshop will explore how indigo, a natural dye plant, is cultivated, processed, and used in sacred as well as everyday rituals. Participants will get to experience the magic of dipping textiles and other natural materials into the dye bath, watching the colour turn from yellow to blue. They 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.
