Over a two days period you will learn the secrets of starting and maintaining a couple of Indigo Vat, using Natural and Pre reduced Indigo. Those will give you different shades of Blue. With a selection of cloth and yarn (Cotton, Linen, Silk and Wool) you will work with the technique of traditional Shibori and a modern twist to it to create beautiful and unique prints on a number of good size samples to take home.

We will reduce our Indigo and thicken it into a printing paste to use with stencils and blocks to surface print.

Over the two days you can expect to:

Learn how to set up and maintain a vat

Practise the technique of Shibori and hand printing both traditional and modern patterns

Produce a number of colour fast samples with your own designs to take home

Included in your fee are:

All the material and equipment needed on the days, Sandwich lunch, teas and coffees and sweat treats and all the samples you have made. You will also leave with a starter pack to duplicate your small vat at home.

You will be invited to bring a small selection of your own material to try.

Elisabeth Viguie Culshaw is a French born, Glasgow based textile artist and works with Indigo and Eco Printing. She is currently working on a community project in Glasgow, "Printing in Woodlands" which involves the public participation in recording the seasons in a community garden and identifying the plants available there.

She travels to South East Asia on a regular basis where she learns her trade with local artisans as well as master dyers, she is training this autumn with Aboubakar Fofana in Bali on Sugar vats. she is very passionate about recycling and most of her work is based on using available resources to create art.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Indigo Blue Creative Retreat are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
