About The Event

Our weekend begins with making an indigo “mother” in preparation for the indigo vat on Friday afternoon. On Saturday we will learn resist techniques with wax based on West African batik techniques Kenya learned during her time in Ghana. Once fabric is prepared participants will immerse their fabric in indigo. Sunday we will close  with a reveal of the work and discussion on how these ancient techniques are made relevant through continued practice, innovation and experimentation.
