This past weekend I had the absolute privilege of attending the Root to Flower: Natural Dye Intensive Workshop at Wildcraft Studio School in Portland, with a dozen other wonderful creative Portland women. Talk about inspiring! We died natural fabrics with things like Madder Root, Dogwood, Marigolds, Hollyhocks and so many other magical plants/blooms. I've been totally crazy about Wildcraft since attending a Spring mushroom workshop many years ago at the White Salmon location. This year, I'm intent on growing my "maker skills." This workshop absolutely pushed my brain in ways it doesn't often go (there was a lot of chemistry going on!) I drove back to Bend full of inspiration by the possibility of natural dyes but also wildly inspired by all the dynamic women who attended. Looking forward to more Wildcraft classes this Spring!
