Artisan Escapes

Artisan Escapes x Victoria Lanarch Indigo Dyeing

Artisan Escapes are retreats based around creative and community experiences such as pottery, yoga or crafting.

I attended the first Artisan Escapes retreat at the Blue Green house in Byron Bay, shooting some of the activities of the day. This included morning yoga, a chef special lunch and a natural indigo plant dyeing workshop with Victoria Lanarch.

We learnt all about the history and process of the dye, then made our own patterns, soaked them and then meditatevely allowed them to oxidise by working into the fabric while drying. I loved both shooting this workshop and participating!
