Registrations close 11 February 2021During this 2 session workshop, the fascinating process of dyeing in the Indigo vat will be explored in detail. You will also learn how this reacts with rust.  On the first day you will learn how to wrap, clamp, roll, fold and dip your papers in a variety of ways using a wide variety of commercial and handmade papers. You will dye the fabric for the cover of your book, which you will make in the second session.

Overnight you will dry/iron your paper and fabric ready for bookmaking on day two.

Day two
You will assemble your beautifully dyed book pages and stitch them together with the indigo dyed thread.  This book will be a wonderful place to display your attractive papers and record what you have learnt about Indigo and rust.
