Foraging the Terrain.

I can't think of a better way to end the harvest season than to create a piece that can be in your home for winter  to remind you of warmer days and greener landscapes.
 In this class we will color cloth and thread using leaves, water and heat. We will work with bio-regional dye sources and gentle meditative stitching during an explorative journey in stitch and color for cloth.
We will take windfall-leaf collecting walk around Terrain to gather material and may supplement the harvest with discards from the kitchen and/or green grocer.
This technique was first introduced to me when I read India Flints book, Eco-Colour. She is an amazing artist and must be checked out! 

Here are some examples from last season.
