Indigo Vat Shack, EP’s off-the-grid indigo workshop for the public that ran through June-Nov of 2016, hosted 12 free community dyes days, 15 summer camps with private hands-on indigo workshops, and helped Charleston’s indigo artists generate income by holding private workshops. Overall, VAT SHACK welcomed over 1,200 guests, most of whom had never dyed in indigo previously. Thanks to everyone for participating!
