10-Day Intensive Workshop


Byron Bay, AU 

This is a very intensive 10-day-long workshop, held over two consecutive weeks which will serve as a comprehensive introduction to dyeing with natural dyes, but is also suitable for people with dyeing experience to extend their repertoire and techniques. Its main focus is Aboubakar Fofana's speciality, the fermented West African indigo dye-vat, made using the whole indigo leaves and fermented over a week to ten days to produce a dye of unmatchable colour and fastness. But whilst participants wait for the fermented dye-vat to reach maturity, they will be shown other dyes, including powdered fructose (quick vat) indigo, mineral mud-dye, and a host of other colours from madder, cochineal, weld, oak-gall and catechu.
