blue/happiness

The sky has been this blue in the Scottish Highlands for quite some time now

And

my indigo vat is turning out nicely

Indigo blue

It’s the organic vat developed by a master dyer genius Michel Garcia. If you can-  take a class with him, not just on indigo, anything, he is a wealth of knowledge and I love how he approaches natural dyeing from chemistry and botany point of view. If you can’t take the class, you can always buy DVDs he produced with Yoshiko Wada.

In the second DVD he demonstrates how to achieve many colours on wool, including indigo and the famous Mayan blue.

  1. How does one get the book or the DVD ? Don’t see it on Amazon and his website is under construction.

    • It’s only DVD, Ruth. If you google the title you will find sellers depending on the country you are in. The French part of his site works and there is the dvd listed. In uk you can buy it at Rainbow Silks.

  2. Take advantage of your next stay in France early September for a few days visit in Lauris … Visit “couleur garance” site for the details … I’ll be there may be we will meet ….
