Learn fiber art techniques and join in conversation about how the mystical chemistry of indigo influenced world history and still bears an imprint on our lives today. (Registration required.)

Weaving Water is a project that seeks to engage the public in community building through craft and connection with water. Artist and botanist Sarah Nassif will connect community members with the Mississippi River watershed through a series of hands-on fiber art workshops that will pose the question, “Where am I within the system?” Nassif facilitates creatives experiences that allow people to connect and consider complex systems while working with their hands.
