First look at the indigo fermentation process + workshop
Do you want to uncover the container where the indigo plant is fermenting to make indigo dye pigment?
On September 22nd, in Columbia SC, I am hosting a one-of-a kind workshop to dye cotton kitchen towels in a fresh (fermented) vat made with fresh indigo just harvested the day before on Johns Island AND during the class you will be able to have a first look at the fermenting indigo. I will explain the technique which is the same technique used in the 1700s.
Not everyone gets to see our local indigo in the fermentation stage!
How do I participate?
To sign up for the class, happening Saturday September 22, from 10am to noon at CHI design indigo studio in Columbia SC, please go to https://chidesignindigo.com/workshops/fresh-leaf-indigo-workshop. I am excited to bring this amazing process to Columbia and share piece of South Carolina history with you.
