Video From LIVE FEEDBACK FRIDAY: Book Making + Natural Dyes With Brece Honeycutt

This week, we’ve got video from our live FEEDBACK FRIDAY featuring book making with natural dye and textile artist Brece Honeycutt.

Watch the video here:

Brece taught us how to do “Improv Book Making” with supplies found in our kitchen and desk drawers. She also took us on a virtual trek to think about journals as a way to document our natural color journeys, writings and drawings during these times.

From Emerson to Thoreau, Emily Dickinson to Mary Oliver and Patti Smith, the common thread for their creativity? A notebook.

If you are not familiar with FEEDBACK FRIDAY, every week, we are emailed with questions from our natural dye community. Weekly, all of  your questions are answered by Kathy Hattori, Founder of Botanical Colors. Both Kathy and Amy DuFault, Botanical Colors’ Sustainability and Social Media Director will be on hand to moderate and answer questions.
