Join local artist and educator Iviva Olenick for a free workshop on indigo dye.

Olenick has created a colonial textile garden in Washington Park featuring flax and indigo. Visit us on September 22 at 3:00 p.m. to learn about the processes that turn these common-looking plants into linen and brilliant blue dye.

By focusing her work on the history of textile production, Olenick enhances our understanding of the impact that these plants had on the evolution of fiber arts in early America and around the world.
