Wat je gaat doen

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 now lowered to 6 people, which allows guest to practice social distancing.

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 knitting, 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.

Waar je naartoe gaat

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.

Lovely experience of learning about natural dyes and getting to experience it by dying a scarf to take home. Auli helped us make our vision a reality.

Slow down and spend a carefree afternoon in a magical place in Mill Valley, dyeing scarves using all-natural ingredients, chatting with your warm and welcoming host. Auli is a passionate textile artist who makes you feel at home in her well-organized studio and beautiful home. The full experience was about 2.5 hours, which was just enough for us to finish dyeing and rinsing our scarves, which we then took home to dry. There was a fair amount of down time (while we waited for the water to boil and the scarves to soak in the dye) but these periods were seamlessly filled with informative lessons on the various ingredients that form different colors, as well as pleasant conversation with Auli and the two other guests that attended the experience that afternoon. There was no cell service in the area, so that helped us stay present and connect with each other :) All in all, a lovely experience.

We were so pleased with the experience. Auli was amazing in explaining the process and was personally involved through out it. Loved her studio and all the artworks and our scarves turned out lovely.

My daughter and I had a wonderful time dyeing scarves with Auli! We learned so much about different plants and the pigments they create. Auli is kind, friendly and knowledgeable and she made this experience very special for us. Her studio is in a beautiful location. We love our custom scarves and love that we can now dye scarves at home thanks to Auli’s instruction.
