Fresh Indigo Workshop
Cultivating fresh blue is simpler than you think! Dyeing with fresh Japanese Indigo can seem intimidating, but the techniques we will learn in this class will easily produce beautiful shades of blue. We will harvest fresh Japanese Indigo from the garden before preparing the leaves for dyeing. Come away from this workshop with a cotton bandana and a silk scarf, along with the confidence to try your hand at extracting botanical blue.
In this workshop, you’ll learn:
- Two simple ways to use fresh indigo leaves
- Cultivating tips and tricks for Japanese Indigo
This in-person class will take place primarily outdoors and will include a conversational lecture, garden tour and hands-on activities. Class size is limited to 15 people, and we will be following current public health recommendations. Please plan to bring a mask, disposable gloves, and dress for an outdoor tour as well as garden and kitchen activities.
*Class cost includes $25 materials fee for dye supplies and fabric creations you’ll take home.
