Just after the third quarter phase of the Flower Moon, come and co-create with us in Poetry Cloth. It's the best time to cultivate and harvest, while giving back to all the growth and goodness that we've been blessed with. We'll be dedicating our time and energy to work and play with plants, and recite our poetry and stories -- literally and on cloths.
Poetry Cloth is our signature workshop that has been held six times within the past three years. We gathered people from various places and backgrounds who love and wanted to establish relationship with plants, fibers, and the colors they create together. Each group dynamic was supportive and authentic, which has made every Poetry Cloth course is unique and unforgettable*.
As we grow, this course, too, has evolved and improved from time to time. What's not neccesary has been let go of, while the ones that are essentials, refreshing and nurturing are added. This includes adding surface pattern painting as a core part of the course.
Poetry Cloth is only held twice a year, with a small size group of 6 - 10 people. The next one will be:
Thursday, 3 June 2021 - Saturday, 5 June 2021
9 am - 4 pm everyday

FAQs - Workshop
May I bring my own fabrics / clothes to dye during the workshop?
Though we love your excitement and enthusiasm in plant dyeing, the answer to this is that you may not bring and/or dye your own fabrics and clothes in the workshop. You will be able to do so after finish the workshop and continue your practice at home or workspace.
Who should join this workshop?
Those who carry a deep love, interest, respect and appreciation for nature, ancestral wisdom, crafts(wo)manship, and conscious creativity. Those who love colors and want to learn more about concocting colors from plants and working with them to dye their clothes. Intuitive arts and crafts enthusiasts. Eco warriors. Those who believe in the magic of nature and aren't afraid to open their mind and heart for possibilities of communicating, learning and co-creating with plants. Those who love hugging trees. Poets. Those who love poetry.
Who is this workshop not for?
Those who strictly want to learn the textbook of plants and plant dyeing. Those who think that they need formal certifications and institutional credentials to be a natural dyer and cloth poet. (When you see with your heart, you will find in your lineages that you have ancestors who were cloth makers and dyers.) Those who think communicating with plants is silly and hugging trees is weird. Those who dislike and don't believe in the power of poetry.
I'm a mother of young children. Can I take them with me to the workshop?
As a mother myself, I feel you and understood that it can be challenging (if not anxious) to work away from your baby or young children especially for a couple days. Though we hope to be able to support you, we can only allow you to take your children with the help of your own sitter or nanny, since we don't provide a person-in-charge specifically for this matter.
Can I get a discount?
At the moment we don't give a discount. All our prices have been carefully calculated not simply by the cost of materials but also the meaning and values of the process and practice we have taken to be able to design, organize and present our heartwork for you.
