Sometimes we don’t give a second thought to what goes in the bin. But did you know your rubbish can be a treasure trove of hues, tones, and gradients? In Maggie Pate’s Capturing Color workshop, you will learn how to see the potential for color and art from even the most inconspicuous unusable food waste. Each participant will leave with

• Natural Dyed Swatches
• Natural Dye Book
• Your own dyed cotton totes and silk Bandanas
• Maggie's e-course on natural dyeing 

Please bring an apron and wear comfortable clothing you don't mind getting dye on.

Maggie Pate's work in textiles explores the intersectional synthesis of textures, nature, and geometry. Recently, she has been focusing on cultivating a studio that is 100% sustainable and eco-friendly by extracting color from predominantly food waste from local restaurants and farms. Her work with color capturing has culminated in her first book, The Natural Colors Cookbook (Page Street Publishing), which aims to make natural dyeing and sustainable color practices accessible to all. Her latest project Feed Weave provides custom fiber installations, advocates for slow craft, and fights food waste & hunger. Before this, Maggie was a fashion model before moving on to work for a label in New York City.
