Fresh Indigo and Bundle Dye Workshop

August 11, 2023 @ 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

$95.00

Hosted by Jen Williams at Wild Dreams Farm and Seed, Taught by local fiber artist Monica Wilson.
Come play in the garden and create color on two silk scarves for you to take home and enjoy. First we will learn the art of bundle dyeing, collecting fresh flowers straight from the Farm’s dye garden. Monica will talk about preparing different fiber for dyeing as well as demonstrate the process of Bundle dyeing.

While one scarf is steaming we will collect fresh indigo and use the leaves to dye another silk scarf. Using indigo leaves, salt and pressure the green leaves will become a teal blue on your silk fabric; truly a magical process to witness. There will be time to chat, drink tea and take in the farm and garden. No experience necessary. Come have fun creating color at this evening gathering!

$95 -Cost includes all materials:
