Natural Dye Workshop at the Earthship

Photographing this event was a feast for the eyes. Which I should have expected from the premier workshop event at the Earthship by Earth tu Face. The space is beautiful and if you are in the Bay Area it is work making a trip. It is located in Temescal close to the Creative Reuse Center (and many yummy restaurants such as my current favorite: Cholita Linda). Check out some photos of the space on The Merchant Home blog and Mood Maybe blog. The workshop participants each got two scarves to dye with a variety of natural dyes. It was taught by Celine Thibault of Moon. I found this blog post up about her dying methods and story on the Juniper Ridge blog.

I also compiled a little teaser video for the Earthship crew to use to promote their new workshops. Enjoy!
