How to Make a 1-2-3 Indigo Vat
This course is the online version of one of my most popular in-person workshops. It contains 35 minutes of instructional videos, a ten page PDF workbook with step-by-step instructions on how to create a 1-2-3 indigo vat, and transcripts of the video narration. The course is self-paced and yours to access forever. The 1-2-3 vat recipe was created by chemist and natural dyer Michel Garcia, and I’ve found it to be my favorite way to make an indigo reduction vat. This vat uses only 3 simple ingredients to create a completely natural indigo vat, free of any harsh synthetic chemicals. Through the video and instructional PDF workbook you’ll learn how to source materials, measure and make a vat, how to properly dip in the vat, a range of simple shibori techniques, ways to revive and troubleshoot your vat, how to care for and dispose of a vat, and how to care for indigo-dyed fibers. If you’ve been longing to try indigo dyeing but are intimidated by the chemistry, or the idea of making a vat, this course is for you. The process is simple, straight forward, and will have you dyeing everything you own blue in no time!
