Join us, Sunday May 13, as we host natural dye artist Graham Keegan.  The high desert will be the first stop on Graham's cross country dye workshop tour.

Time:

1-2pm - indigo seedling pick up and plant discussion.

2-4pm - dye workshop

As the date approaches, you will be contacted and provided with exact location information for your local reservation.

• Learn how indigo is extracted from plants

• Learn how to create your own indigo vat from scratch

• Dye fabric with a huge range of patterns

• Bring an item or two of your own to dip in the vat.

• Free seedlings for your garden, learn to grow your own dye.

The workshop will be held at Janelle & Robert's desert property in Yucca Valley.  Be sure to wear protective clothes (i.e. sun hat, sunscreen etc) and bring water and snacks. If you are not local to the high desert, we recommend booking your accommodations soon, as spring is a busy time of year for tourism.
