In the last blog post I said I would be moving back to Charleston, well, again, life has a very funny way of keeping you on your toes! I was settling into the idea of moving back there and life happened and I found myself back in Athens, Ga. I think I may have a little whiplash from all this! This year has been crazy to say the least.
So, I'm back in the Athens area living in a little farmhouse about one mile outside the lovely little town of Winterville, Ga., around 10 miles from downtown Athens. This little house has a very nice garden area and I've already started turning over the soil getting it ready to plant. I'll be planting indigo and other dye plants as well as vegetables, in this crazy world today I think it's very important to grow your own food. There is also room to hold workshops, so I've posted a few on the workshop page. The first one will be a Drop In and Dye Day on March 18th. The beginning of April I'll be back in the Lowcountry to give a talk to a lovely group of women on Hilton Head Island, SC and then a talk and demo for the South Carolina Historical Society in Charleston. April 22nd I've scheduled a One Day Indigo Intensive, there are a few changes for this one and it will be explained in the course description. There will be several other days where we'll be dyeing both with indigo as well as other dye plants, I just haven't scheduled them yet. I'll be back for forth to the Lowcountry and hope I can find a place to have a workshop or two there. The Ossabaw Island Foundation has scheduled their annual Indigo Days we do on Ossabaw Island for Sept. 23rd and 24th. You will need to contact them to reserve a spot and they fill up very fast.
Please let me know if there is anything you would be interested in doing! I'll be adding more workshops and dye days as the year progresses.
