A concept space and store in NoHo, lululemon lab develops focused collections which are produced in limited quantities. Special workshops and events are also organized.
This workshop focuses on creating an indigo dye vat from scratch. Indigo needs special steps and materials to stay on the fabric. Most recipes use chemicals that can be dangerous. We will use a formula developed by french natural dye master Michel Garcia, which in addition to indigo, uses sugar and cal. We will also go through the basics of dyeing with other natural sources.
Every participant will receive:
- 1 Lululemon Shirt: Love Tee OR 5 Year Basic Tee (please specify size when buying ticket)
- 1 cotton scarf (30"X30")
- 1 zine with a brief history on natural dyes, general instructions and photos of common dye sources
- 1 zine with the recipe to replicate the indigo vat at home and where to buy the ingredients needed
We will also have refreshments and snacks!
