We are offering this Fieldwork Session twice, by popular demand!

Spend the day with renowned textile artist Sasha Duerr, founder of Permacouture Institute, for an afternoon exploring the alchemy of natural dyes. Utilizing the seasonal offerings of spring flora, together with seawater, rust, and other natural catalyzers, Duerr will instruct on best practices for making wearable dyed textiles. After walking the grounds to learn how to easily identify potent players in natural dye recipes, use a Marin-inspired bath to create a silk scarf that brilliantly preserves the palette of the season.

About Fieldwork Sessions

Fieldwork Sessions are inspired by the resources of Headlands’ dynamic artist community, unique site, and the surrounding landscape. Whether you’re a practicing artist looking for deep engagement with your work, a creative thrill-seeker looking to get your hands dirty, or an arts appreciator looking to learn more about the creative process, Fieldwork Sessions (ranging from a one day activity to a three week series) are led by multidisciplinary presenters and are designed to send participants home with the skills, objects, and relationships born of their experience.

All Fieldwork Sessions participants must be 18 or older.
