Online Course Seed to Fashion 2020 for children of 4-6graders
Mihoko will offer a 6 month program (one meeting in a month) called Seed to Fashion. The program is for people to grow indigo plants at a community garden, learn how to spin fleece, dye fiber with indigo leaves, and weave a scarf with the yarn they dyed. It is an inspirational program to all. She has conducted the program for all ages in 2018 and 2019.
This online course requires you to have an access to have a zoom meeting with Mihoko. She will send out some materials and tools so participants will be able to learn at the meeting class and practice at home after.
