Ecological Arts utilizes both ancient and modern textile processes, to re-introduce a practice of engaging with the natural world ethically. Raw materials are chosen for their ecological integrity. Organic and locally raised fibers are dyed in home grown fermentation Indigo, sustainably raised and gathered ancient dyes, and tended wild native plant matter. Together, these native, ancient, raw fibers and dye stuffs are used to create textile pieces that reflect time-honored, sustaining, human-animal- and plant relationships.
Ecological Arts works with adults and children, furthering these practices through workshops, ecological restoration, lectures, and courses
