Francesca Carella Arfinego: Taking and giving back, natural dyeing on stolen land 

While deepening my understanding of natural dyeing techniques and playing with different dye materials and colourways, questions about reciprocity and settler responsibilities arise. Speaking from my perspective as a latinx first generation settler, I invite you to join in conversation about foraging, gifts, Land Back calls of action, appropriation in craft practices and living in relationship with the peoples who have protected and passed down the knowledge of natural dyeing.
