Join Sasha Duerr, and Chef Kelsie Kerr at 18 Reasons for a Dinner to Dye For.
Experience a dip into natural dyeing, while sipping botanically flavored aperitifs and dining on a meal created from the same colorful dye plants. The evening will widen your winter taste and color palette creating both a culinary experience and a natural dye color installation created from urban dye plants and local produce. Includes drinks, dinner, swatches from a mid-winter plant color palette, and a take home naturally dyed textile you'll dye while you dine from the very same plants.
