It defines an era of music as well as marks time in the art world, and can describe complicated feelings with one simple word.

BLUE: the color of gods, of both sadness and serenity, of sea and sky. Prolific yet elusive, blue can be made from only a few plants on earth. Long part of the artists’ palette, Persicaria tinctoria – indigo, has been used for ages to make pigment and dye. Learn how to work with this easy-to-grow plant in a two-day workshop series. Receive seeds and growing instructions along with ready-to-use paint.
