Come share an unforgettable morning with The Homestead Atlanta at Serenbe’s funky and scenic Art Farm. Not only are we bringing back our wildly popular indigo dyeing workshop, we’re making it a delightful morning out complete with sweet and savory brunch bites and mimosas from Serenbe’s wonderful Blue Eyed Daisy cafe. We’ve never been more excited to have the blues.
Learn about the chemistry of natural dyes, the history of indigo and try your hand at several techniques including plangi shibori, arashi shibori as well as traditional tie, stitch and clamp resists. Design and create a set of four napkins and placemats to make your table a work of art or give as a perfect gift. Plus, if you have any natural fiber fabrics (wool, cotton, bamboo, etc.) or yarn at home you’d like to dye, please bring them along!
MOTHER’S DAY SPECIAL: It’s a special weekend to celebrate Mom – and we can’t think of a better way to do it than creating something beautiful together. Please see our pricing options for a special “Mom & Me” discount.
