Natural Dye Workshop
Sunday, January 17, 3:00-7:00pm
$45 for 18 Reasons members, $55 for the general public

Experience the electric colors you can conjure from the urban color palette of San Francisco. By experimenting with seasonal weeds, plant waste and other unsuspecting sources of awe inspiring natural dyes, this hands-on workshop will deepen your exploration of local and seasonal color. You'll learn to dye a full spectrum of winter hues mapped from local plants. In this class you'll create a series of seasonally plant dyed samples, learn surface design techniques, and create a finished dyed textile from an array of San Francisco urban color sources.

Includes snacks made from the plants we are using in class.
