As I say a lot... I ❤️ the community of makers/biz owners I'm lucky enough to meet in person and on @instagram. I also ❤️ to play and experiment. Workshops are a fun place to do this. I want to go to so many workshops all the time to hang with the people I admire, but that adds up. I always wish there could be a fellow-maker discount. To that point, I'm offering one spot at my workshops to other textile designers/natural dyers. Maybe it's just a place to sit back and be part of the community. I'm not claiming to be the utmost expert on any particular skill, but allowing space to be open to play/learn/share is where it's at for me. Plus, I tell a mean story, like to break the rules and love to host 😉
If you're interested in this spot for next Sunday's workshop, hit me up and I'll pick a name out of a hat. Be my guest😜

Sunday, August 27, I am hosting a cochineal workshop (pink/red dyestuff made from the 🐜 that attaches to the prickly pear 🌵)at our home studio. There are still a few spots left, but it's a great group so far!! I'll be posting a link to purchase online tomorrow when I return from the road. In the meantime, DM if you'd like to be added to the list.

The worship will include a history of the use of cochineal and the sordid stories of its trade. Get ready for pirates, popes, riches and politics! We'll also be making our own dye bath from locally foraged cochineal. We'll make scarves, pendant flags and dyed rope.

We've been on the Lost Coast for the last week. No wifi. No water. Just extra wild 🌊 and beauty. We met some amazing folks too. It's been nice to shut off for a bit. Will tell ya all about it when we get home. For now, the journey continues...

No Girl-Dog, you cannot roll in dead things on the beach. We have to sleep next to you!

That face. My ❤️

We made it to our favorite spot at our favorite campsite. There's no reservations, so you have to be quick on your feet. We send the boys out on their bikes to keep a watchout 👀 . It's been so nice, we decided to stay the week.

My favorite way to wake up. Before everyone wakes, I love to kayak to this little cove where all the birds live. There's this one species that makes a real guttural sound. Anyone know the name? There's some in my stories. There's one tree that fell into the lagoon this winter and it's now the home to river otters and many different bird species. This morning I floated for a while and watched life on the tree. A river otter family took turns climbing up and diving into the water while a blue heron stood by and watched. I can't wait to get back to this spot every year!!!

Dinner. We rolled up to a campground and all the spots were full. A nice family let us share theirs. Soon, we had 3 families around the campfire . Now, we're all planning to meet up in the same spot next summer. Best party of summer roadtrip = the people you meet⛺️🔥👍
