Indigo – the colors of sky and sea captured onto cloth. Ancient, filled with mystery, beauty, and wonder, this plant- derived blue inspires passion! Day one will focus on using a natural indigo vat to create plain and patterned fabrics to transform into book cloth. Patterns are informed by the traditional Japanese itajime style of fold and clamp dyeing. You make two 24” x 36” pieces. On day two mount the paper backing onto you indigo-dyed cloths and explore itajime on paper appropriate for use in book interiors.
