LANDSCAPE ALCHEMY- SPRING COLOR WITH CALIFORNIA DYE PLANTS
TILDEN BOTANIC GARDEN
Create a seasonal and local color palette from an array of in-season Northern California plant based dyes. Learn to design fresh, modern textiles with saturated spring made color, pattern resists, and simple surface design techniques. We’ll explore alchemy and biodiversity for plant-based colors from indigenous 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, connecting you to a vibrant array of fresh spring color.
