Indigo Dyeing

Indigo is absolute magic.

I remember the first time I was introduced to it at SCAD's dye lab in Pepe Hall, in Savannah, Georgia - wondering "Oh my goodness... Oof... WHAT is that SMELL?!" - and then watching it oxidize from electrics hues of lime green to lush blues with such depth I was just sure I could lean over and just swim in the color in the fabric. 

And here now years later - I am finding such warmth and fond memories of the scent of the indigo vat and completely understanding how artists and makers have devoted their practice to using only this dye - and I am finding it's place in my own practice.

Here are some images from my latest exploration:
