The Yoruba Blues - The art of indigo dyeing in Nigeria

Lucille Junkere returns to the gallery to talk about her indigo dyeing journey since her residency at the William Morris Gallery. She recently travelled to Nigeria through a Winston Churchill Fellowship where she studied indigo dyeing techniques amongst Yoruba artisans. Àdíre is the Yoruba word for the resist dyed cloth made in Yoruba towns in Nigeria. The textile functions both as an aesthetic expression and a means of communication, offering a deep insight into Yoruba religion, culture, folklore and history. Her talk with be illustrated with short videos, photography, music and Lucille’s own indigo work.
