Lunch to Dye For: Creating Wintery Blues with Red Cabbage
It's no secret that red cabbage is a beautiful plant, but did you know that it holds lasting dye color? One of the oldest known vegetables, Cabbage is farmed from East to West, considered to be a "cure-all" by some ancients, red cabbage is hailed for its medicinal properties, and even known to bring good luck on New Year's Eve-the color is just as versatile as the plant itself!

In this in-depth workshop you'll learn how to uncover stunning natural hues from saturated blues to deep purples and lavenders with this wondrous winter vegetable.   Sasha Duerr, founder of Permacouture Institute, author of the Handbook of Natural Plant Dyes, and instructor of our brilliant Foraging for Fashion class last fall is back to show you how.   She will lead you through all the steps needed to turn this plant into stunning, non-toxic, lasting, and sustainable color for your dining room table. You'll learn to make artisan plant dyed and patterned woolen textiles,  and create a colorful and savory meal to highlight the fantastic by-products of the slow food and slow textile movements. Our guest chef - Kelsie Kerr, of Chez Panisse and the Cavallo Point Cooking School.  Yum! At the end of this class, you'll leave full of a sumptuous meal, plenty of stylish slow textile inspiration,  and a deliciously dyed and patterned wintry blue wool table runner to adorn your next dinner party!

The ticket price includes all supplies and tools, including fabric and lunch. Please note that due to seasonality, pomegranates are no longer available for this workshop. But a world of purple, blue, and red awaits you with the amazing red cabbage.
