Explore the magical and unexpected world of dyeing with plants. Our classes weave together plants, fiber, and crafts, and offer you insight into the vast array of color nature has to offer. Workshops have included dyeing from farm harvested indigo and black walnut, West Marin native plants, and various ornamental flowers.
“Workshop participants at Red Twig Farm have a unique opportunity. Most workshops provide materials. Red Twig produces the full life cycle experience of the plants who are lending their wisdom to human endeavors. Seed to scarf, near to the land, I experienced the life of a plant capable of creating Indigo, a shade the modern world takes for granted. The land reflects the respect it is given, singing between it's two creeks. Red Twig workshops yield the experience of a full sphere community along with thoughtful curriculum and the deep wisdom of women who are engaged with unfolding the Earth's secrets.” —Mindee A Jeffery, Good Earth Natural Foods
