I feel like one of my roles in this family is to scour Facebook like it’s my full-time job. I look for local classes, workshops, opportunities, excursions… basically anything that can add to our well-rounded education. Sometimes I fall into a rabbit hole reading about the worst mistaken text someone ever sent or watching a slideshow of funny rabbit pictures. #sidebenefits
The latest class I discovered was through a local studio, teaching people how to dye fabric using indigo. Indigo is a plant native to the tropics and has been used for centuries to dye clothing. The original “blue” in “blue jeans” was indigo, although our workshop leader tells us that most dyes are synthetic now. But since indigo is native to Thailand and the surrounding area, we were able to attend a 3- day workshop where we started from the very beginning – harvesting the plant – and over the course of the class we dyed our own fabric! It was a really interesting class. I’m going to tell you about it in pictures…
That was really interesting! I had no idea of where Indigo came from. Thanks for sharing!
Linda, me too! When I saw the workshop I had to google it and figure out what it was about. Now that we know, we see it everywhere. 🙂
Hi ya, am interested in learning the workshop.could you tell me the name of the studio you attended please.
Here is the studio. I notice their website is not working right now so here is their facebook page. Thanks for asking, I hope you do it. https://www.facebook.com/studionaenna/
