Natural indigo has been used for thousands of years. Every community has its own ritual, recipe, and technique for creating indigo dye.

We’re excited to welcome Naomi of flight path designs to explore the magic of indigo dye in a hands-on workshop on Sunday, May 26th at London Fields Shoppe. Participants will utilize clamps, string, and blocks among other materials in combination of various Japanese shibori and resist dyeing methods to create patterns on fabric.
