Video: Growing Natural Dyes at Brooklyn’s Textile Arts Center

We headed over to the Textile Arts Center in Gowanus, Brooklyn to check out their workspace and learn a little bit more about what they do. Studio manager Isa Rodrigues talked to us about the TAC’s mission statement, and told a bit more about their natural dying initiative, called Sewing Seeds. We learned that Japanese indigo actually comes from a fully green plant commonly known as Dyer’s Knotweed, and that they’ve got a brand new artist-in-residence program.
