Natural Dyeing Workshop with Sasha Duerr



Hello Summer! Welcome the colors of a warm summer day with a fun natural dyeing workshop with artist and designer Sasha Duerr.

You'll learn how to make and use natural dyes. We'll choose plant dyes that add to the summery vibe - ie. an indigo dye vat (ocean & sky blues) , an aloe dye bath (warm yellow/pink/light coral) and a hibiscus dye bath (pink/ mauve/fuschia/dark gray blue) - a variety of local plants & flora to compliment your seaside days!

We'll dye a silk sarong & dip dye a Pali swimwear woven hat (as seen in the photo) to take home!

Pali Swimwear designers, Martha (Sasha's sister) & Naomi, will be at the studio to assist Sasha. Stop by the store after the workshop to check out Pali swim, a new line for Cameron Marks. Designed and ethically made in SF - a new bathing suit to pair with your hand dyed sarong & hat?

We'll cap off the day with a special "To Dye For" cocktail and cheers to the summer ahead!


Sasha Duerr is an artist and designer who works with plant-based palettes, natural dyes and place-based recipes. She is a professor at the California College of the Arts with a joint appointment in textiles and fine arts where she designs curriculum and teaches courses in the intersection of natural color, slow food, slow fashion and social practice.

Sasha will have copies of her new book Natural Color for sale, and will be signing books for those who would like a signed copy.
