When not teaching in-person and online courses, Kristin grows her own seasonal dye plants in her home garden for closer experimentation. In addition, she often shares seeds and sprouts with students. After becoming enamored with the world of natural color, Kristin has taken years to expand her toolkit.

She has studied with Kathy Hattori, Catharine Ellis, Joy Boutrup, and many more amazing instructors.
