Soil to Skin - Making Regenerative Color
Join Grow Kitchen as they bring the botanic bounty of the garden into the kitchen for a day of dye making.
Explore 5,000 year old dye recipes from species like locally raised madder and indigo and combine them with over-dyeing processes from species native to California -- coyote brush, california solidago, and coffeeberry.
Participants will learn to make their own substantive and lasting dyes on a range of locally raised wools and organic cottons from the California's Capay Valley. Everyone will create their own range of samples to document the colors of the season and fibers of our region.
This class will include tea and snacks upon arrival as well as a healthy garden fresh lunch.
