May 31, 2015

Grange at SHED | 12:00pm-4:00pm
Click here for more information
Explore the many colors of California and immerse yourself in the ancient art of plant-dyed textiles in this hands-on workshop led by artist Chelsea Heffner of WildCraft Studio School.
Chelsea will introduce students to a collection of special dye plants such as Toyon, Eucalyptus, Sage, and Prickly Pear, which are found predominantly in the temperate regions of the California coast. She will discuss wildcrafting and sustainable harvesting as well as the cultural significance and traditional uses of these plants. Students will work with a range of non-toxic and animal fibers including wool, silk, and alpaca to learn the basic processes of natural dying. Dye experiments will be recorded in a journal of swatches and samples. In addition to this swatchbook, students will create a hand-dyed piece of silk yardage to take home.
Chelsea Heffner is a multi-disciplinary artist, designer, and teacher residing in White Salmon, WA and Portland, OR. She is the founder of WildCraft Studio School and is an Assistant Professor at The Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, OR. Her early years were occupied with painting and printmaking, and her current work has developed into a practice of textiles, teaching, business and creative consulting. Regardless of the medium or objective, her work reflects a commitment to observation to the natural world and its natural patterns of light, weather, and color.
Please dress in work clothes, as we will be working around fabric dyes. Students will receive a 10% discount for purchases at SHED the day of the workshop.

YOU'LL THINK YOU DINED AND WENT TO WINE HEAVEN.
The first thing you notice at Sonoma Wine Country Weekend is the decided lack of distance between yourself and the people who grow and make some of the world's most amazing wine and food. For three delicious, decadent days, you'll experience, up close and personal, Sonoma's full bounty of flavors. Rub shoulders with winegrowers and makers from the pioneers to the rising stars. Offer your compliments to the chefs, both acclaimed and up-and-coming.
Sonoma Wine Country Weekend is Sonoma County's signature, and largest, charity event, bringing together over 200 of Sonoma's top winemakers and growers, along with a collection of the area's best chefs. Jointly produced by the Sonoma County Vintners and the Sonoma Valley Vintners & Growers Foundation, all proceeds benefit local Sonoma charities. Since its inception, Sonoma Wine Country Weekend has raised over $16 million for charities that benefit students, children, farm workers and people in need in Sonoma County communities.
