Indigo Vat Dyeing with Monica Wilson

Indigo Vat Dyeing with Monica Wilson


Friday, August 16th, 10am-2pm


Come learn and play with the most sought after color, Indigo Blue. We will be learning a bit of indigo history and then dive into how to make indigo vat. You will be provided with four organic cotton napkins to dye.  Monica will demonstrate several different resist techniques like stitching with thread and using wood clamps to create unique designs.  Try one or try them all!  We will then dip your napkins in the vats and watch the magic of indigo.  Gloves and all materials will be provided. We suggest you bring an apron to protect your clothes.  


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: $125.00


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.
