Philly Swap event

The Philly Swap event was held in the Urban Outfitter’s Naval yard space early October. We had a stand at
the event to describe and demo the indigo vat process. We made small swatch bracelets and also had some
marigolds being boiled to describe a non vat related dye. It was a great experience!!!

Mira and I worked the station next door to the printmakers.
