Indigo Magic at NSCAD

Our five weeks of Indigo Magic held as part of NSCAD's extended studies program wrapped up this week. 

Over the five weeks course participants learnt and explored:
  1. How to make an indigo vat
  2. Stitched shibori resist designs 
  3. Asashi shibori (using a tube to create a resist)
  4. Itajime shibori (folded)
  5. Tesuji shibori (pleated)
  6. Other natural dye methods including rust and turmeric

Gwen's shibori explorations hanging out to dry

turmeric makes a delightful contrast against the deep blue of the indigo
