Video From LIVE FEEDBACK FRIDAY: Sasha Duerr Talks Plant Dyeing

This week, we’ve got video from our live FEEDBACK FRIDAY featuring Sasha Duerr and her tips on place-based dyeing.

Watch the video here:

Sasha taught us how to look at place as a treasure trove of color. She also gave some great tips on how to accept color no matter how long it lasts. If you didn’t grab her new book yet, go here to grab a copy. You might also like her 5 Seasonal Color Wheels derived from local plant and food sources throughout the year.

A couple of things to share with you from Sasha…

The Seaweed Research Book

Sasha Poem Excerpt (from spring 1995- Freshman Poetry Seminar) 

I am five
I hold my hand outstretched to speak my age
I run through the mossy woods all day
Squatting so close to puddles
I can breathe the air through the water

Rachel Carson… From The Sense of Wonder “… drink in the beauty and wonder at the meaning of what you see.”

“Where the Seed Scattered”– Luisa A. Igloria

Quote from Jason Logan of the Toronto Ink Company
