FRIENDS OF THE CHICO STATE HERBARIUM
Create a seasonal and local color palette from an array of native California plant-based dyes. Learn to design fresh plant based color palettes and textiles with saturated hues. You'll also experiment with 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 get ideas of how to make 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 to native, local, and seasonal color palettes all year long.
