      Indigo Fest: The Craft of the Vat

      INDIGO FEST Join us for a farm to fiber 2nd annual Indigo Fest workshop with natural dye growers and artists Brittany Boles, Kara Gilbs, and Iris Sullivan Daire. Experience the North Coast vat made with exclusively local ingredients. We'll dive deep into exclusively local indigo and vat making with kiln-fired Willipa Bay oyster shells, orange rind pectin, and japanese indigo pigment grown and extracted here on the farm. You'll learn intuitive vat building and start to finish processes for creating your own organic indigo vats from scratch. Take home your own mini North Coast vat, a sampler of indigo dyed natural fibers, Japanese Indigo plants for your garden, and a booklet with vat recipes, trouble shooting tips, and more.  Details: Friday September 20th from 6-9pm at North Fork 53 Farm Class $110 Materials Fee $40 total ticket price= $150 Want to make it a weekend?
