Workshop: Indigo Dyeing

Indigo has been a part of the American landscape since the invention of blue jeans. In this workshop, participants will gain a rich understanding of the indigo plant, its environment, history and role as a heritage plant of Georgia. They will learn natural dyeing techniques such as clamping, folding and tying with eco-dyer Donna Harvey. Each participant will be given a silk scarf and are encouraged to bring one extra piece of fabric or garment of their choice (must be pre-washed 100% cotton or 100% silk). This workshop is geared towards adults. Participants should be prepared to have fun and get messy as indigo is a strong natural dye. Limited to 12 people.
