I was so thrilled to partake in a 5–day workshop "Fundamentals of Color from Plants and Insects: Exploring Wide Applications of Natural Dyeing and Printing on Textiles," with dye–master Michel Garcia.
"A French National born in Morocco, Garcia is a well–respected botanist, chemist, and naturalist. In addition, he is an artist, author, and curator. Michel Garcia has unlocked the natural, colorful mystery of plants, through a life–long passion and interest. In the process he has developed ways to lessen the environmental impact of chemical dyes."
