We’ll explore alchemy and biodiversity for plant-based colors from indigenous California plants, low-water dyes, and even an extensive range of beautiful natural color using invasive weeds and chaparral. 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 a vibrant array of beautiful California-made
