Blue is a tough color to get from nature and no plant that we know gives blue from Icelandic nature. For hundreds of years we have used the indigo plant from abroad,  it has become part of our tradition. The students work two and two together to dye blue and other colours by overdying with miltiple colours.The class is hands on and we work together in the dyeing process, talk and have fun together, that is how we learn.
