Join Sasha Duerr and Kelsie Kerr at Gospel Flat Farm in Bolinas, California for a full-day workshop of exploring the color and flavor of summer.|
Spend the morning making seasonal plant dyes and tasting the diversity of locally farmed and foraged ingredients of Northern California. Create a plant palette with Sasha, and dye an array of stunning take-home textiles. Kelsie will host a tasting of local and seasonal produce.
Begin the lunch hour with an aperitif and mid-summer weed walk to learn about edible and dye producing plants in the wild.
Sit down together for a delicious lunch and color installation dyed with the same ingredients.
Our SUMMER COLOR+TASTE PALETTE WORKSHOP is part of PERMACOUTURE INSTITUTE's FOUR SEASON SERIES - more unique sessions will be offered to savor slow textiles and the biodiversity of color and taste throughout the upcoming year.
