colour plantae

Colour Plantae is a holding place for images, inspiration, and ideas that inspire my work in botanical dyes and the textile arts.

"Being a part of nature, being embedded in it and living on it, it appeared to me that acting in compliance with the laws of nature was something self-evident and necessary for survival."
-Nils Udo
We are getting close!  I’ve been working hard, curating local talent for our first ever ‘Handmade: A Maker’s Market’ @ The Ecology Center on November 8th.
The inspiration comes from the belief that change can come from building a thriving local economy, spurred by makers, who are then supported by our community, 
We all win when our basic needs can be filled by locally made and domestically sourced materials, including wood, fibers, and plants. 
From small changes in our consumption patterns, big results come. Choosing to support local artisans is just one way in which everyone can make a difference.
'Handmade' offers a chance to get in touch with some of these resources.
We hope to see you there!!

As I observe myself working here, intensely, passionately, it occurs to me that when we unabashedly create, not only is it medicine for the he/she creating; but often, that creation is the exact gift we were meant to share with the world.
