In this workshop I’ll shed light on the often shadowy, enigmatic dye, indigo. I’ll discuss (and show and tell as much as possible if plants are in season) methods for extracting the color from the leaves of different varieties of indigo. When the plants are right, I’m happy to share clippings so that you can try growing your own. Once the pigment is out of the plant, the dye work begins. I’ll explain just a few ways how to fold and prepare our fabrics which actually allow us to dye a vast range of patterns. We’ll also discuss washing, care and coatings for UV protection for your textiles
