Aranya Natural is celebrating 25 years!

In just 8 months Aranya Natural will be celebrating their 25th Anniversary!

Have you ever wanted to visit India, spend time in a region steeped in natural beauty, explore natural dyes and right before your eyes see how dreams really do come true?

Aranya Natural was created 25 years ago – it was a dream, a wish, a thought. 25 years later Aranya Natural is world renowned for both its natural dye work and the folks who are the heart of Aranya Natural - the artisans.

February 22,23,24 &25 2020 is when this event will take place in Munnar, Kerala, Southern India.

Registration is open on their website https://www.aranyanatural.com/

More information will follow.

But I will let you in on a little secret – I will be teaching two ½ day four-hour indigo related workshops on the 24th & 25th.

Located in Kannan Devan hills, Aranya Natural is part of the larger Sristhi Trust, a welfare center for the differently-abled. There are five arms to this organization and you can read more on their website http://www.srishtinatural.com/

Munnar is located in an area with lush greenery, rolling hills covered in teas bushes, friendly people and great food. Here the air is fresh, the atmosphere soothing and Ayurvedic Spas will relieve your jet-lag.

Munnar is situated in the Western Ghats in the state of Kerala. Eravikulam National Park is just a short Tuktuk ride away. Here you will see amazing views, beautiful wild flowers and the endangered mountain goat Nilgiri tahr.

Come celebrate with me! Meet the folks responsible for making this dream a reality and meet the artisans who make the magic happen!

I hope to see you in Munnar in February 2020!
