Learn how to trans­form indi­go leaves into blue dye, and all about the col­ors of the plants and flow­ers grow­ing through­out New York City. The work­shop will start with har­vest­ing the woad or medieval indi­go grow­ing in GrowNY­C’s Teach­ing Gar­den. Par­tic­i­pants will then gen­tly har­vest flow­ers from the gar­den for petal pound­ing and print­ing, and use it to make their own nat­ur­al indi­go dye. All mate­ri­als provided. Suit­able for adults and chil­dren aged 9 and up accom­pa­nied by an adult.
