Join us for a personal, one-on-one, reflective indigo dip at the Lynden Sculpture Garden with artist-in-residence Kim Khaira. During your 45-minute session, Khaira will share her knowledge of natural dyeing with plant materials harvested at Lynden, and will provide a hands-on experience with indigo dyeing. With tools and materials provided to create an indigo vat, together we will develop our skill in creating specific hues with indigo. We will produce three variations of blue, and each participant will also receive a piece of cloth to create a blue of your choice. Newcomers to natural and indigo dyeing welcome, as well as long-time indigo practitioners.

Dress for dyeing. Bring writing materials and water; masks are required.

About the Artist
As a beginning of a lifelong journey with natural dyeing, Lynden’s artist-in-residence Kim Khaira would like to share and provide practice sessions with artists and community members interested in co-learning and mutual reflections of indigo dyeing. In the second year of her residency, and building on exchanges and encounters with artists at Lynden and beyond--and especially Arianne King Comer’s batik and indigo practices--Khaira is exploring personal art practices that translate to cultural and familial ways of living. Her focus has been on natural dyeing as a way of living and a connecting point between peoples, cultures, and nature.

October 8, 2020 - 10:00am - 11:30am

Thursdays, 10-11 am
Sessions meet outdoors. In the event of rain, a make-up session will meet the following week.

Lynden’s Art + Nature Lab for children aged 4-6 integrates our collection of monumental outdoor sculpture with the natural ecology of our hidden landscapes and unique habitats. Join art educator and naturalist Claudia Orjuela for hands-on art making and all-senses-engaged exploration of the outdoor world at Lynden. Children and their caregivers are learning and discovering side by side. We will foster an environment that extends children’s thinking and wonder through play and inquiry, problem solving, experimentation, and manipulation of art materials. Different themes will connect Lynden’s environment and learning opportunities with children’s interests, broadening their sense of place as they expand their connections with the natural world and one another. Masks required for adults. Social distancing will be practiced at all times. To view our Guidelines for Parent-and-Child, Youth Workshops, click here.

Fee: $16/12 members for one adult and one child.
Registration: Group size is limited. For the safety of all concerned, you must register in advance. Register online now.
