Blue Indigo

 This small group, women’s-only, indigo focussed exploration of Japan from Wednesday, 25 September to Thursday, 10 October 2024.

Get your hands blue in five private indigo workshops including both fresh leaf dyeing and sukumo based (the Japanese ‘compost method’) dyeing, and explore resist dyeing techniques including katazome (rice paste), kasuri (Japanese ikat) and shibori.

Engage with a range of indigo farmers and specialist artistans, be inspired by incredible design and craftsmanship, visit specialist indigo museums, galleries and studios, enjoy artisan talks, and shop for amazing textiles and handcrafts. Enjoy a flea market, a tea ceremony, a washi paper making workshop, temples and shrines and some of the cultural sites of Tokyo, Kyoto, Tokushima and Kurume, and experience traditional Japanese culture and hospitality, all in the company of a small group of likeminded textile and indigo enthusiasts.

Our group will comprise a maximum of 12 women plus our wonderful local Japanese English-speaking guide.
