Harvesting Color

Ecological Artist and Fibershed founder Rebecca Burgess leads a day long exploration in native plant dyes. Rebecca works as an ecological restoration educator, curricula developer, author, and textile artist. Her newly released book, Harvesting Color, explains where to find plants in the wild and the best way to harvest them. Explore the deep orange, sage-like greens, and sunny yellows that are offered by the native and naturalized plants of our region. Learn everything from harvesting to preparing local fibers to producing beautiful textiles with natural color from the California chaparral ecosystem. Rebecca currently resides in Northern California, and is offering this workshop exclusively for the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. Limited to 25 participants.
