Our first event of 2015 was filled with all the things we love: a hands-on workshop, easy conversation, a thoughtful meal, plenty of wine, and lots of lingering in the soft glow of beeswax candlelight. We're oh-so glad to count The American Craft Council as a partner on this event, and thankful to our hosts at Artifact Coffee for being so warm and welcoming on a cold February night.
Much gratitude goes to Sarah Pottle of Driftlab Textile Co. for her clear passion and wealth of knowledge on natural plant dyes. Guests warmed up with a whiskey smash, then dyed Shibori tea towels and received take-home mordant kits to capture their own roots, leaves, and bark. While the dye pots worked their magic, we feasted on a three-course winter supper. Our friends at Dolcezza Gelato capped off the evening with darling push-pops. Yeah, it was a good night.
