Natural Palettes: inspiration from plant-based color with Sasha Duerr
April 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm$20.00
Book Talk + Demo
From the natural color ingredients that can be found in weeds, prunings and cover crops, to the vast potential of food and floral waste, plant-based “color stories” to both poetically and practically engage us in immersive and holistic practices.
In this webinar, Sasha will share inspiration through examples from her new book “Natural Palettes” (Princeton Architectural Press 2020) and demos highlighting the important role plant-based colors can hold in widening our “color senses,” supporting biodiversity, while also offering an abundance of opportunity for creativity and collaboration in the process.
Students will be invited to submit questions during this 1.25-hour presentation. An edited video of the webinar will be made available to webinar registrants within approximately one week of the event.
This webinar will be streaming live via Zoom from Sasha’s studio in Hawaii, in collaboration with the Fibershed Learning Center, a multi-use space to demonstrate and provide hands-on connections to natural fiber and dye systems. The Learning Center will open in 2021 in Point Reyes Station, California, on the traditional and ancestral territory of the Coast Miwok and within the historic Black Mountain Ranch property.
Proceeds from each event support the class instructor and contribute to Fibershed for educational programming. A portion of the proceeds from each virtual event will also be shared with a local and mission-aligned non-profit organization, selected by the instructor. The recipient of a donation from Sasha’s class is Urban Tilth.
