Join Judi Pettite of BioHue for an online session on small scale pigment extraction from Japanese indigo (Persicaria tinctoria).
Judi will provide step-by-step instruction on the process of yielding pigment from the plant. This class is ideal for anyone who has Japanese indigo in the garden and wants to use the extract for an indigo vat, or for painting and drawing mediums.
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 event will also be shared with a local and mission-aligned non-profit organization, selected by the instructor — Museum of the American Indian in Novato, CA. 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.
