There are many species of plant that have indigo pigment in them. One species grown locally in New Jersey and in our dye garden is Persicaria tinctoria known as "Japanese indigo". In this workshop, two natural dyers (Cait and Melanie) will put their gardens together for a fresh leaf indigo extraction workshop. You will learn how to grow, process, and extract indigo pigment in two different ways to yield those gorgeous blues. 

Students will have the opportunity to dye a silk scarf and hank for sampling and to add to their natural dye wardrobe.
