Read the Article and be sure to check out the accompanying slide show. Do any of you keep an indigo vat going? I think maybe Upstairs Studio used to.


  1. I’ve had a long-time interest in Indigo dying, especially for use in Batik dying. I’ve looked at what is involved in setting up an indigo vat, and feel it’s too complicated to do without an experienced mentor.
