During this indigo immersion weekend, Victoria Larnach shared with us the brilliant hues of one of the oldest natural plant dyes in the world.   This "Queen Plant" has an alchemy and especially unique process. Indigo represents the color of wisdom, clarity, and deep inner knowing.   We will learned to create the natural fructose vat prepared from powder pigment. We applied the chemistry and alchemy of indigo towards the principles of setting up and caring for an indigo fructose vat, and then practiced achieving different shades of blue in the vats we made together on sample fabric while practicing with Shibori techniques to make original patterns. In the process, we opened our creativity and meditative breath while immersing our hands into the dye vats, connecting deeper into the plant realm.
