The Color Blue: A Two-Part Indigo Dye Workshop Series
Join us for a two-part workshop, The Color Blue, led by Botanist-in-Residence Hope Leeson and RISD student Clara Boberg TX 23. These workshops will take place on Saturday, November 6th and 13th, from 1 to 4pm at the Edna Lawrence Nature Lab, Biodesign Makerspace (Room 11).
In this workshop series we will investigate color as a means of communication, explore the theme of fermentation as process, and delve into the importance of the color blue for living creatures. During these workshops, we will process and dye indigo grown here at RISD in the Nature Lab’s aquaponics tank and in the Regenerative Earth Collective Dye Garden (established by Clara Boberg). REC aims to provide students with the material and space to explore regenerative growing, and plant fibers and color as a medium for their work.
This series is open to current RISD students, faculty, and staff only. You must be available to attend both workshop sessions to participate. Reservation is required. RSVP HERE.
