9am-5pm

Join us at Hill & Hollow Farm for a day of dyeing with our farm’s own organically grown Japanese Indigo. We will guide you through the whole process from harvesting indigo leaves, preparing the dye vat, readying the yarn, and finally dyeing the skein blue. From start to finish, this workshop will offer you hands-on experience with natural dyeing. In addition, there will also be weaving demonstrations and opportunities to work with raw fleece and learn about wool processing, . Participants will be provided an organic farm to table morning snack and lunch, and take home their own skein of indigo-dyed wool yarn.

Instructors: Robin Verson and Deanna Perlman

Cost: $250 per person

due to the hands-on nature of this process, the class is limited to 10 participants

working scholarships are available so if you are unable to attend for financial reasons, please contact us

children under 12 are welcome free of charge
