Indigo Saturday

  • Oregon College of Art & Craft 8245 Southwest Barnes Road Portland, OR, 97225 United States (map)

Learn to make a small, personal natural indigo vat without worrying about toxicity or cost of heavy chemicals.  This vat uses fruit residue in a natural chemical reduction to produce a quick, reliable, long-lasting indigo blue.  We'll explore simple resist techniques that produce textile patterns on silk and cotton fabrics, as well as threads for stitching. Students will learn care and maintenance of their vats.


$100 tuition + $25 studio fee
