Modern Textile Design with California Native Plant Dyes

Create a seasonal and local color palette from an array of native Northern California plant-based dyes. Learn to design fresh textiles with saturated color from botanical pattern resists and simple surface design techniques. We’ll explore alchemy and biodiversity for plant-based colors from indigenous California plants, low water dyes, and even an extensive range of color from invasive weeds. Each participant will leave the class with a beautiful palette of botanically dyed samples, as well as a gorgeous finished textile for you or your home-connecting you to your favorite seasonal native plants all year long!

Supplies list will be provided upon registration. Please bring lunch
