Tuesday, October 22, 2019 – PLANTS, COLOR, PLACE: USING LOCAL NATURAL DYES

Join natural dyer and plant lover Helen Krayenhoff for a presentation on using natural plant dyes on fiber. Co-owner of Kassenhoff Growers plant nursery in Oakland, Helen has over 20 years experience in growing organic plants and is co-author of 10 Plants for Color — A Simple Guide to Growing and Using Natural Dye Plants.

In her presentation, she will talk about her love of plants and how using them to dye fiber has deepened her appreciation for growing them. Following her journey in the cultivation of natural dyeing experience, she will show some slides, share some stories, and have samples for you to look at. Bringing natural color to local fiber opens a window into seeing how our practices can move us beyondcreating sustainable textiles to something truly regenerative.
