I attended the VAWAA to expand my understanding of Vietnamese craft, specifically in indigo. I've only worked with indigo in its powdered form, so I really wanted to deepen my knowledge by learning the growing, harvesting, and making of indigo.

The workshop was beyond anything I had imagine. I learned so much about naturals dyes, but more importantly I was able to connect and learn so much with Thảo and the Nùng An women. Their understanding of craft was so meticulously and refined, but I also enjoyed our conversations about life and the experiences they were able to share with me.
