Det skal I lave

I'm offering a fun workshop where you will dye a wool or silk scarf that you can wear while exploring the sometimes chilly California coast and bring back home as a souvenir to keep those memories alive! During the workshop you will learn the process of natural dyeing from extracting dyes from local plants dyeing a scarf. Inspired by the traditions in this region we will use acorn, eucalyptus leaves and coffee berry bush leaves. You will have a wide choice of traditional dyes to work with as well. The workshop is very much hands on, you will be working on your own projects and make your own natural dyes for your scarf. Each person is provided with individual tools and working station. The maximum group size is 8 people, which allows guests to practice social distancing.
Other things to note
The dyeing workshop is hands on and the quests are doing all the steps of natural dyeing. The workshop is not suitable for small children, since we will be handling hot liquids.

I taught both children and adults in textile crafts and art for almost thirty years in Finland and trained teachers in that field at the University of Helsinki. Since moving to California three years ago I've opened my own fiber art studio where I continue weaving, dyeing wool using local plants, and teaching workshops on weaving, dyeing and up-cycling materials such as textiles and plastics. I embrace traditions and meld those ideas and methods with modern skills. I'm committed to environmentally sustainable crafts and would like to share the joy of creating and making with you. I'm following all the cleaning and safety guidelines provided by the Airbnb including face covers, cleanness and social distancing.

Her skal du være

The workshop takes place at Auli's Studio. During the Covid-19 pandemic we are working and dyeing fabrics outdoors on the patio and garden area. My studio is on our peaceful and naturally beautiful property next to national parkland not far from Muir Woods and only 10 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge.

This was an amazing experience. I really appreciated being able to make personal choices and connections. Learning how to use dyes made from materials I have at my own home was really wonderful. And I love how pretty everybody’s scarves turned out!

I booked this experience to do with my mom as a Mother’s Day gift. We both had so much fun. My mom was a total newbie, and while I’ve had previous experience with dyeing fabrics before, I still learned a lot from Auli and got to experiment with different techniques. Auli was so friendly and knowledgeable and really made this a perfect experience for us! Thank you, Auli! I would definitely recommend this class to friends.

Auli created a magical creative experience in a delightful Marin County setting. Her studio is surrounded by forest and infused with that special Scandinavian style, as she is originally from Finland. She deepened my knowledge of plant and natural dyes while supporting me to create a beautiful scarf. As I am new to the Bay Area, the afternoon was a welcome opportunity to connect with travelers and locals alike. A former art teacher, Auli brings her decades of knowledge to a casual, but carefully planned experience. I highly recommend Dying a Scarf with California Plants as a must do experience. Relax and explore your inner artist.

We loved this experience! Auli was so knowledgeable and clearly very talented. I appreciated the ability to learn about and personalize our dyeing experiences. And at such a lovely home/garden. Highly recommend for a beautiful afternoon.

This is a great experience - a day out in a wonderful location, and you learn a new skill too! We loved the scarves that we created, and Auli's suggestions made all the difference. She makes learning fun. We're not artistic but ended up with some beautiful scarves.
