Soy flour paste knowledge has been passed down since Tang and Song Dynasties in China and has been commonly practiced in many other regions in Asia. Unlike a rice paste, soy flour paste requires shorter steps to make and easier to apply on fabrics to make patterns. During the class, students will learn a story about one of indigo plant species “Polygonum tinctorium”, how to dye fabric with dried indigo leaves, and how to make the soy flour paste for pattern making on fabrics.
