    In our January meeting of the Natural Dye Study Group we will take some time to look at our outcomes from 2019 and decide what we want to focus on in the new year. Please bring any samples from last year that you would like to talk about: both successes and failures. Also bring any resources; books or online sources that you like to share. If you are new to the group, this is a perfect time to get involved and let us know what you are interested in. We will meet a bit later this month since we won’t be firing up the dye pots.

    Looking forward to seeing you.

    All things indigo!

    From growing to processing to dyeing techniques--if it has to do with indigo, we will study it.

    In the first quarter of 2020 we will explore painting with indigo. Two helpful references are John Marshall’s books Singing the Blues and Salvation through Soy.

    Bring your cloth and paintbrushes. We will treat fabrics with soymilk and make indigo paint together.

    The Indigo Forum can be found here. Consider subscribing to it and posting your questions, answers, work, etc.
