Exploring the Fall Color and Taste Palette with Kelsie Kerr and Sasha Duerr
Join Sasha and Kelsie at Healdsburg SHED for an afternoon of exploring the colors and flavors of the season. Using local fall produce we'll make natural dye baths and seasonal hors d'oeuvres to create an exciting palette of color and tastes. You will leave sated with color and flavor carrying swatches of fall hues, an array of beautiful samples, and a finished seasonally dyed textile to take home.
The 3-hour class is divided between learning about the local color palette, making and using a series of dye baths, tasting a bio-diverse selection of seasonal fruit, and making a few delicious recipes to share.
