Spring/Summer 2019 Workshop Series
Crafting and Nourishing Our Way into Summer with Lara Pacheco, Paige Common & Kate Coulton
Join herbalists Lara Pacheco and Kate Coulton as we craft with natural dyeing and nourish with some seasonal medicine making to bring us into the warmer and expansive months of the year. Lunch will be provided by Chef, Paige Common from Eatin’ Alive. Each participant will learn some basic steps of dyeing with plants and will be able to personalize their own dye bath. Folks will take home a tea blend that we will make as well. When registering for the class please specify if you would like to dye a cotton scarf or a skein of wool yarn. (If signing up 4 days or less before the workshop you will dye yarn.) Join us Friday evening May 24th from 6:30-7:30pm if you want to learn how to prepare your fibers for the dye process.
Kate Coulton of Pinon Botanicals and Lara Pacheco of Seed and Thistle Apothecary offer customized experiences around connecting folks to plant medicine, body and land. They do this through education and herbal crafting. Lara also offers a 11 month herbal apprenticeship program that delves deeper into these connections and supports folks in tapping into their ancestral medicine.
