Indigo Dyeing and Textile Repurposing Workshop with Textile Lab-May 1st

In the US alone, we throw into the landfill, 14 million tons of textiles per year. These discarded textiles emit methane, adding to the greenhouse gas problem, as well as leach chemicals into the ground from synthetic dyes and fibers. So what can we do about this problem? Join Textile Lab for an afternoon of repurposing and natural indigo dyeing!
