Saturday, October 28, 2017

10:00 AM - 2:00 PM CST

Materials : All Supplies Are Provided

Lunch: Lunch: Potluck Style. A sampling of food from local shops / bakeries will be available; please feel free to bring your favorite recipe to share.

A glimpse at the multifaceted benefits of a selection of locally foraged plants. 

Presented in collaboration with Lauren Haynes of Wooden Spoon Herbs.

Lauren will provide an introduction to the medicinal properties of a selection of local plants and how to incorporate them into your daily routine, as well as discussing their benefits in her line of carefully crafted recipes.

We will also explore the vast color range of these natural resources and experiment with their various reactions on protein (wool, silk, alpaca) vs. cellulose (cotton, linen, hemp) fibers.

A brief plant / farm walk will commence our morning before we pause for lunch.

The afternoon is set aside for slow stitching and embellishment using the sample fabric + fiber from the morning dye vats. Various samples of medicine pouches / applique will be on display for inspiration, although creative exploration is always encouraged.

 

(Space is limited to 12 participants)
