IndiGrowing Blue is a participatory art project that through the growing and processing of Japanese indigo (Polygonum tinctorium) aims to explore our relationship to our raw materials and the environment from which they come.
IndiGrowing Blue started in 2010 and is ongoing, with special events organized around the transplanting, harvesting, and processing of the indigo.
Deb Gorr of Bee Creative has started a food blog. It will be a swell place with a lot of simple common sense and consideration. She has a way with that. Please say hi for me. I have listed her new blog in the side bar under Food.
If you are interested in natural dyeing, buy the book. Acknowledge the truth in it. Support the gift giver for the gift is uncommon in this crazy world we try to make home. This world where "steal like an artist" seems a more popular idea. I think we should all go to the forest for a break.
