LOCATION: The Garden Tent
Bay Area textile artist and professor Sasha Duerr will return to MAGC with her new book, “Natural Color: Vibrant Plant Dye Projects for Your Home and Wardrobe” on Thursday, May 25th from 1-2:30 pm.
Following the incredible success of the slow food movement, slow fashion is now gaining momentum, with more and more environmentally-conscious consumers buying locally produced clothing and homewares created using sustainable methods and artisanal techniques.
Natural Color is a beautifully-photographed book of seasonal projects for using the brilliant spectrum of colors derived from plants to naturally dye your clothing and home textiles. Organized by season, it is a guide to the full range of plant dyes available, drawn from commonly found fruits, flowers, trees, and herbs, with accompanying projects. Using sustainable methods and artisanal techniques, Sasha Duerr details achievable ways to apply these limitless color possibilities to your home and wardrobe.
Sasha will give a short talk and demonstrate recipes from the book. A book sale and reception follow the presentation.
