This video with Botanical Colors Founder Kathy Hattori in Cordova, Alaska looks at foraging and natural dyeing.
Kathy travels to Cordova to teach a workshop on local color. In addition to foraging sustainably for natural dye plants on glaciers, Kathy and crew explored regional color through flowers, lichen and a little sprinkling of Botanical Colors’ own extracts. This video was part of the shorts program at Mountainfilm. Mountainfilm is a documentary film festival that showcases documentaries about environmental, cultural, political and social justice issues. The film festival is in Telluride, Colorado.
