In this episode of Indigo in Green, we take a visit to Aunt Marjory in Germantown and say hello to her black walnut tree, make dye from the black walnut hulls, then create fabric for a Fibonacci quilt. Later join in on the ecoprint experiment fun and enjoy the last bits of the season with long shadows, listening for the sounds of the wind blowing through the trees.
Hosted by Nicole Duprée of Ampersand Textile & Design, featuring:
The Peach Tree
This first episode of Indigo in Green is all about trees and a love letter to the natural colors of the peach tree. Join us to make printmaking ink from peach pits, play with peach bark ink, visit a peach tree at a West Philly community garden, meet maker friends for peach cobbler, and talk about the need for and plan for more trees in Philadelphia.
