Taught by guest instructor Rachel Snow
Rachel Snow is a textile artist, clinical herbalist, and midwife located in Louisville, Colorado. As a printmaker, she found herself continuously incorporating plants into her relief work, and wished there was a way to turn her prints into fabric she could wear. (Turns out there is!) This ultimately led her to discover the art of botanical dyeing, which was the perfect outlet for her completely plant and flower-obsessed mind. When she is not harvesting flowers and trashing her kitchen with her dye projects, you can find her catching babies, in her garden, or spending time with her husband and two kiddos.
