About the event

Immerse yourself in the world of plant dyeing and the natural origin of the color blue: indigo! We will get to know one of the most ancieant plants for natural dyeing - indigo - the mother of all dyeing plants! People all over the world have been dyeing with indigo for thousands of years - today we want to introduce you to this secret. During the Indigo Workshop we will look at the origin, production and properties of indigo. In the main part of the workshop we will explain all the steps to create an indigo vat (dye bath) together and then we will set up one together. After various exercises with 4 Shibori folding techniques, we fold and dye the clothes we brought with us (or the linen cloths we provided) together. The workshop takes place on Thursday afternoon, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m at the Coconat workcation retreat.

Coconat is located in the village of Klein Glien, just outside Bad Belzig in Brandenburg, 90km south-west of Berlin. It takes less than two hours to travel here from Berlin. You can easily take the RE7 from Ostkreuz oder central station (Hauptbahnhof)
