Book Launch: Journeys in Natural Dyeing

November 7, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

 Kristine Vejar and Adrienne Rodriguez

 Botanical Garden

Journeys in Natural Dyeing shares the story of Kristine Vejar and Adrienne Rodriguez’s travels to four countries, Iceland, Mexico, Japan, and Indonesia, where they visited natural dyers who use their locally-sourced dyes in dramatically different environments to create textiles that evoke beauty, a connection to the land on which they live, and showcase their mastery of skill. This book includes profiles of the artists met.
From their California-based studio, Vejar and Rodriguez used their own locally-grown and gathered dyestuffs, from leaves to fungi, and utilized techniques, from extraction to fermentation, to create over 400 shades of color. This book shares their process and includes recipes and projects to create all of these colors and more. In addition, you will learn how to use your own natural environment to create deep, beautiful colors. You will see your neighborhood in a whole new way.
