Indigo Dying Workshop

Indigo Dying Workshop

Indigo Dying Workshop

Saturday, August 24, 2024, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Join Berndaette Puleo for a very exciting Indigo Dying workshop! With just some leaves of the Japanese Indigo plant and a sprinkle of salt, you will dye a silk item of your choice. There will be silk scarves to wear or gift bags that will hold a bottle of wine.

After you dye your item of choice, you will stencil a design with rolled up leaves or indigo pigment. You can even hammer a leaf print right onto your dyed item. You will experience the magic of indigo and take home something beautiful that is uniquely yours.

In addition, you can take home some stems that will root in a matter of days and plant them. You may have some leaves to play with, or if they flower, seeds for next year.

REpurposed & REimagined Art Show and Auction

Saturday, May 18, 2024

We are thrilled that the South Bay Art Association is holding Repurposed & Reimagined Found Objects, an art exhibition, and auction to benefit CEED at the Washington Lodge on May 18. SBAA asked artists to create and donate works of art using found materials.  The results are sure to be amazing.  Join us to see the works and maybe you’ll go home with a new treasure and support CEED at the same time.
