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!
A conference, performances, workshops, and a large-scale exhibition that gathers artists and philanthropists to discuss the impact of art and technology on culture.
I'm a big fan of Gray Area. Their mission of supporting art and technology with positive social impact resonates on so many levels with my own existing and developing ideas. They recently had their first festival / conference and I was lucky enough to be able to attend most of the sessions and night time show case events. A few of my photos were chosen to be part of this piece about the event on Vice's the Creators Project. Learn more about Gray Area on their website.
"West Coast Craft is a craft and design show featuring carefully selected designers, artists, and craftspeople inspired by the mood and aesthetics of the West Coast lifestyle. Cool but sunny, laid back yet innovative, they represent the best of West Coast craft." - WCC
Artisanal slingshots, geometric shapes, tribal adornment, leather, coffee in enamel mugs - that was the scene at the West Coast craft show. So many unique vendors and meticulously crafted items. You could see the love and pride beaming from the craftsmen and women. We arrived late on a Sunday, hoping it would be a slow time. No such luck. It was so crowded that we decided to strategically do a few laps before escaping to the beach.
P.S. Refinery29 had a photo feature on the totally on-point personal style. Check it out.
