Join Craig Wilkinson of Craig's Indigo for this virtual event. He will share his experience growing indigo over the last seven years in Northern California, including his current crop at the Santa Rosa Junior College Shone Farm located in Forestville, California.
Craig will give a general comparison of indigo vats made from composted indigo and indigo pigment made from a water extraction method, and he will demonstrate how to make a fructose vat with composted indigo. He will also be dyeing fibers from several Fibershed producers.
Participants will be invited to submit questions. Webinar ends at 12:15 pm.

This webinar is part of a series that will be streaming live via Zoom from the Fibershed Learning Center, a multi-use space to demonstrate and provide hands-on connections to natural fiber and dye systems. The Learning Center will open later this year in Point Reyes Station, California, on the traditional and ancestral territory of the Coast Miwok and within the historic Black Mountain Ranch property.
Proceeds from each event support the class instructor and contribute to Fibershed for educational programming. A portion of the proceeds from this class will be donated to Daily Acts (dailyacts.org), a non-profit organization whose vision to create healthy, just and sustainable communities built upon the daily actions of many people.
Currently scheduled online events are listed on our Learning Center page at fibershed.org/programs/education/learningcenter/
A video of the webinar will be made available to webinar registrants within approximately two weeks of the event.
