The Magic of Blue
an introduction to natural dyeing
at The Farm Stay at Hill & Hollow
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.
