Fresh Indigo Dye Class with Monica Wilson

Fresh Indigo Dye Class with Monica Wilson


Saturday, July 20th 10am-2pm


In this workshop we learn to use the indigo plant straight from the garden! This is a seasonal method of dyeing that can only be done in the summer months when the indigo plants are growing fresh in the field. First we will harvest leaves.  Then Monica will teach several methods of going from green to blue using only the indigo leaves and salt.  She will also demonstrate stenciling and leaf pounding techniques.  It is truly a magical process.  For this class you will be provided with a silk scarf and cotton fabric.


All workshops take place at Wild Dreams Farm and Seed and include a farm grown lunch, tea, and a farm tour.


Cost, including all materials: $105.00


As part of our commitment to inclusivity and equity we are offering BIPOC scholarships for each workshop.  There is no application- only a desire to attend. Please email jennifer@ to claim your spot.


About Monica:

Monica Wilson, of Solidago Grow, is a natural dyer, sewer, and artist in the Pacific Northwest. After over a decade as a hairstylist in Downtown Seattle, she found herself searching for another creative pursuit. Eventually, she found natural dyeing and it was a perfect fit - combining her other favorite interests of sewing and gardening.


The first dye plant she grew was indigo and the moment she created a sea blue from an unassuming green plant she was hooked. She now grows many dye plants to share and use in her practice, where she creates dyed goods and shares her love of creating natural color through teaching others.

Monica currently lives across the water on beautiful Vashon Island with her husband, 3 busy kids, a dog, cat, several goats and many, many chickens.
