In the Spring I have given indigo seeds to some of you. I have heard that the indigo has been growing well. In my tiny garden plots beautiful indigo plants are spreading out. Now it is time to experiment with the indigo leaves. The fresh leaves contains the blue/green (teal) color pigments. We can dye silk fabric with them with water.It is a simple procedure yet have to be done quickly.
Please sign up the workshop below if you need to experience in first hand! Participants will dye one silk scarf of your choice. If you like, you can do simple shibori (resist tie dye) effect.
I will save slots for people who have grown indigo then first come, first serve basis.
