Botanic Blue Illuminated

December 1, 2012 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Come and hear the story how Fibershed is taking on a 400-year-old indigo tradition here in Northern California. The presentation will illuminate our farming and artisanal work to bring botanic blue to our community. The presentation is followed by a benefit celebration hosted by Eastern Classics, a local business that supports high-end woodworking skills in our community and abroad. The silent auction includes the first-ever, dip-dyed with locally-grown indigo, zafu meditation cushions.

Seating is limited. Please RSVP by emailing marnie.glickman@gmail.com today. Contact Marnie by email, or at 415-259-7121 if you have any questions.
