If you haven’t heard about Blueprint Amsterdam, you should certainly check out what they’re doing, as it’s bang in-line with the indigo artisan movement that’s emerging globally right now.

The team at Blueprint Amsterdam aim to re-visit bygone tradition and artisan printing and dying techniques in order to create contemporary updates. They recently opened a store for the months of March and April, displaying a treasure trove of rare indigo pieces. They are also focussing on working with the local community by holding indigo workshops in their studio space where they encourage people to learn about the indigo plant, the history and the processes involved in this awesome dyestuff.

Blue Print was set up by Celia Geraedts, a graphic artist who has a particular affinity with indigo and textile design, having previously worked with Levi’s, Denham, Tommy Hilfiger and Esprit Denim.

They are holding their workshops on Saturdays and Sundays in March and April; check out their website for more details!

And here’s the address, to go and check out the store and workshops:

    Hi I am a Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Printed Textiles & Surface Pattern Design degree at Leeds College of Art, England. I am bringing over a number of students to Amsterdam on 23rd to 26th November for a cultural trip, and I wondered if it might be possible for the Tutors to visit your workshop to talk about Natural Dyes. I appreciate that this might not be possible & you will be extremely busy, but we teach natural dyes & Indigo & it would be fabulous to see this in a commercial environment.
