Green Leaf Indigo Blue
with Nancy Zeller
Dates: Aug 3 , 2019 - 1 day(s)
9:00 am - 5:00 pm each day.
Join me for a day in the garden and studio learning to grow, harvest and dye with fresh leaf Polygonum / Persicaria tinctoria. This annual species grows prolifically in the Northern hemisphere, if tended with attention, and carries a fair amount of indican to ultimately yield both subtle and deep indigo blues. You will learn plant growing basics and continue to gathering fresh Polygonum leaves, following the steps necessary to dyeing with and managing your own living indigo vat. You will also learn the process for creating a natural indigo vat known as Michel Garcia’s 1-2-3 Vat. Bring you own fibers (2#s maximum). A basic supply list will be provided prior to class. Sustainable, unimaginable, phenomenal blue!!
