An Introduction to Indigo


This is a one-day workshop, which can be held at my studio, Atelier Bye-Ways in the Dandenongs or at a venue nearer you. We explore the art of indigo dyeing, using a chemical free fructose vat. Working with indigo is a magical and alchemical process with many applications. 

During this day we will share knowledge and investigate:

  • the theory of setting a fructose vat

  • the method of preparing cloth

  • the practice of using the vat to create 5 colour tones


​Most importantly you will gain the confidence and wisdom to continue experimenting at home.


​Workshops cost $125, run from 10am-4.30pm and are hosted at Atelier Bye-Ways in Upwey, Victoria.


Workshops run throughout the year.
