We love the deep true blue of natural indigo dye and we think you will too! This Saturday at our Annual Open House try natural indigo dyeing in our community indigo dip.

Bring or buy items to dye… No need to prepare a thing, we’ll have a dye-it-yourself station set up for everyone to try for free.

Indigo is a dark blue natural dye that’s easy to work with. It dyes beautifully on all natural fibers – both plant (cellulose) and animal (protein). There is no need to pre-mordant or otherwise prepare your yarn or cloth, please just make sure items are clean. Prep space and all the basic tools will be available as well as guidance for trying different techniques. Indigo will dye a true blue on white bases or you can create great effects by overdying other colors or patterned items.

Indigo Sessions will be from 10:15 to noon & 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in the School Street garage/loading dock.

White yarns and simple cloth blanks will be available to purchase, or you can bring your own. Indigo supplies will be available for sale as well if you just can’t get enough and want to try it at home!

This Memorial Day weekend is everything you could hope for on the coast of Maine – fresh ocean air, lilacs, apple blossoms, and sunlight that lingers on the river late into the evenings… Nothing makes me feel more creative than the abundance of plants springing back to life, and the hustle and bustle of people emerging after a long winter, plus the promise of a little more free time!

Read on to plan your visit, or if you just want a glimpse of what’s happening in our neck of the woods…
