Click here to register
Oak Spring Garden Foundation is pleased to welcome author and natural dye artist Rosa Chang for a Youth Storytime, Book Signing, and Natural Dye Workshop! This 1-hour workshop is well suited for children ages 11 and under, who are interested in listening to Rosa share her story, My Indigo World, which pays tribute to the science and art of growing the indigo plant and making indigo dye. Participants will enjoy storytime in the gardens of OSGF and dye a cloth bandana using the Japanese Indigo plant.
The workshop will begin with a brief introduction to natural dye plants grown at OSGF. Chang will then share some information about her interests and experiences with natural dyes. Each child will receive a signed copy of My Indigo World, a Japanese Indigo seedling, and an Indigo-dyed bandana. The workshop will last approximately 1 hour. Participants will have the option to choose from a morning session (10:30-11:30 AM) and an afternoon session (1:00 - 2:00 PM).
Book Reading & Indigo Dye Demonstration
@ Manor Woods Elementry School in Ellicott City, Maryland
I had such a blessing time with around 250 students of 3rd and 4th grade students at Manor Woods Elementry School in Ellicott City. My little indigo vat, some original illustrations, and copies of My Indigo World came along with me. It was amazing to see how young students are so excited about Korean heritage, diverse cultural aspects of indigo and learn more about the fermentation & oxidation processes when the indigo dyed fabric color turns from yellow to green to BLUE! Receiving genuine compliments from those children made me so happy and to look back why I decided to make the book.
