Saturday 15th October 2022

2:00 - 5:00pm

Rouge Shop, 158 Stoke Newington High Street, London, N16 7JL

All materials included

On the night of the workshop you will be guided by Luisa Uribe, London based designer who spent a few years living in Japan. It was there where she discovered a true love for indigo dyeing, began her study of traditional Japanese textile techniques and the place where her textile art has been exhibited.

Her passion for indigo has also taken Luisa to spend some time in India, where she learnt about local indigo, mud resist and hand block printing techniques. Over the years, she has also learnt from other masters from West Africa, America and Europe and her ongoing research haven’t reached an end.

Luisa has been growing Persicaria Tinctoria (Japanese indigo) since 2019, from which she extracts indigo pigment to dye, paint and make other artist’s materials like watercolours and inks. Luisa also co-founded the Indigo Garden London, a place dedicated to growing indigo bearing plants and promoting slow and sustainable textile dyeing.
