Reminder! Indigo Dye Workshop

What is Indigo? Indigo is a plant grown for use as a blue dye material. We use it today thanks to the many people around the globe who, for centuries, have cultivated its growth and developed sophisticated techniques for its use. In this outdoor, in-person workshop* we will explore indigo immersion dyeing and shibori resist techniques (Japanese cloth binding for dyeing). Experience the unique qualities of indigo as your fabric goes into the bubbling green bath and emerges as a beautiful blue artifact.
When: Saturday, October 3, 1-4 pm EST
Where: Outside Hunt Library
Workshop is limited to 20 participants. RSVP, please
