We just started a fermentation process to extract indigo. First step is to harvest the indigo leaves and after that directly submerges them in to water. It will take a couple of weeks before extraction of the pigment can start…the outcome is yet still unsure but knowledge is power!
So much knowledge, generosity and spirit of indigo. I’m so thankful for those three days in Athens, working together in Aboubakar Fofanas studio. I will set up a 200 L natural indigo vat for making new tests as soon as I’m back home. It´s magic every time!
Soon on my way to Athens and a 3 days workshop in natural indigo dyeing for the Master dyer Aboubakar Fofana! Photo by Claudia Sangiorgio Dallimore.
Work in progress. Laborating with geometrical shapes, materials and foldings and indigo.
