The exclusive 3-month internship programme follows the Absolute Blue: BUAISOU Works with Japanese Natural Indigo exhibition presented in CHAT’s Winter Programme 2022. The successful candidates will join BUAISOU in their studio and farm in Tokushima and experience their unique farm-to-closet practices, from farming and harvesting indigo to learning about fermentation and dyeing techniques.

Open to application from Hong Kong residents, applicants are required to possess substantial knowledge in indigo dyeing, show great passion for the craft, be independent and are dedicated to learning about Japanese indigo farming traditions. The internship will require proficiency in Japanese or English and involve outdoor work. An international driving permit is also recommended.
