Natural Color Workshop with Sasha Duerr

Learn how to create a seasonal color palette from an abundance of waste and weeds with artist and author Sasha Duerr in this special Sonoma color workshop, then sample the flavors of some favorite dye plants in a reception with tastes and drinks prepared by the SHED kitchen.

Inspired by her “Seasonal Color Wheel” Sasha will teach participants how to make plant dye palettes foraged from the farmer’s market, garden, or even urban sidewalk. Beyond creating an abundant array of color swatches made from a curated selection of local edibles and weeds, attendees will also dye their own table runner saturated with the seasonal color palette of Sonoma. All participants will also take home a copy of Sasha’s latest book Natural Color and will receive a 10% discount for all purchases made in the SHED retail store the day of the event.

Sasha Duerr is an artist and author who works with plant palettes. She is a professor in Textiles at the California College of the Arts and founder of Permacouture Institute, which explores regenerative design for fashion and textiles. Her work with place based dyes and slow fashion and textiles has been featured in the New York Times, Whole Living Magazine, and the Huffington Post. Sasha is the author of The Handbook of Natural Plant Dyes (Timber Press. January 2011) and Natural Color (Watson-Guptill. August 2016).

The workshop has very limited seating, so reserve your spot today.
