The date of the workshop has been changed to July. So for any of you who could not attend in February-this is your chance! We will be processing (fermenting) our own indigo with the traditional method using only plants-then learning how to dye with it. The process of fermentation takes a few weeks to complete. But, in the meantime we will be busy dyeing with other plants from Mexico!
This is a hands-on workshop so you will be handling the dyes and the wet fibers. It’s best to wear old clothes or bring an apron. A hat will be helpful for walking to and from the cafe/bathroom.
Most students bring a notebook and pen for getting all the details of organic dyeing.
The workshop takes place outdoors, on a covered/shaded patio in “El Charco”-a botanical garden and land preserve in San Miguel de Allende, in Guanajuato. There is a small cafe on the grounds that serves freshly made breakfast and lunch.
Payments can be made directly to El Charco

TRAVEL AND LODGING INFORMATION
The closest airports are Queretero, Guanajuato and Leon, Guanajuato. The Mexico City airport is only about 4 hours by bus. (Do not hail a cab in Mexico City. Use only authorized taxi stands inside the airports and bus terminal) If you need help finding accomodations in San Miguel please let me know. San Miguel is a clean and very safe city. But, as with any city, use common sense when traveling.
