Dahlia Milon Leads Indigo Workshop from BioLab

On February 18th, the Textiles and Materiality Research ClusterStudio Re-Imagine, the Department of Fibres & Material Practices, and the STAIN lab hosted textile craftsperson and dye plant cultivator Dahlia Milon for a conversation on local plant-based dyes followed by a workshop on indigo dyeing. From the BioLab and over Zoom, Dahlia was able to spend the afternoon taking us through the slow process of preparing an indigo vat, dyeing the textiles, and setting the colour.
