Il tuo host
I’m an educator specializing in the seed to pigment processes of indigo plants. I teach natural dye workshops in the Pacific NW and currate a global platform for indigo pigment extraction methods. Here at NorthFork53, we’ve created the first natural dye farm experience on the Oregon Coast. This local blue echos the spirit of the Pacific Ocean and is one of nature’s rare and mysterious colors. I’m looking forward to sharing it’s secrets with you!
