Learn the natural way to make your own indigo dye vat with The Dogwood Dyer. This process has roots in traditional textiles from Morocco, India, and the Provence region of France. The blue color produced by indigo is rich, complex, and unparalleled in beauty. Learn the science behind growing and harvesting indigo while experiencing the alchemistic wonder of this beautiful color.

No previous dyeing knowledge necessary. Each participant will leave with various types of indigo dyed fabrics. All supplies are included. However, if you wish, you may bring a small or medium sized garment of natural fabric (wool, silk, cotton, linen, hemp) to dye.
