Traditional Yoruba Batik, Adire and Tie-Dye With Indigo

September 9, 2018 – September 15, 2018

Gasali Adeyemo

In this workshop students explore traditional batik, adire and tie-dyeing techniques while learning about the arts and culture of the Yoruba people from a native Nigerian artist. You will experiment with patterns and vibrant color using wax, paste resist, indigo, and fiber dyes to produce beautiful cloth. Open to all skill levels.


Gasali Adeyemo grew up in Ofatedo, Nigeria. He studied for six years at the Nike Center for Arts & Culture and then remained for four years as a teacher. In 1995, his artwork was exhibited in Bayruth, Germany and as a result his artistic career bloomed. A participant in the World Craft Summit, the Maiwa Symposium and the World Batik Conference, Gasali has made it his life’s work to give workshops, presentations and lectures to communicate the beauty of indigo textiles and share the Yoruba culture. Gasali currently resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
