Dryland Wilds is a bioregional perfumery creating scents of place from its wild harvests throughout New Mexico.  Founders Cebastien + Robin schlep antique perfume-making equipment way out into the desert and mountains, collecting resins, needles, flowers and leaves and turning them into fragrances that smell like the wild places they were collected from.  They strive for their work to benefit the land they are on – choosing to harvest “invasive” plants, prune forests to reduce the severity of wild fires and educate on how to use unwanted plants rather than poisoning them.

MAKE YOUR OWN CUSTOM FELT PENNANTS!

Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 10am - 2pm

No longer confined to the realm of sports teams and tourist traps, pennants are a fun way to show your love and support for your weird hobbies, your pets, or can simply be a delivery method for any short, punchy message. In this workshop, BT Livermore will guide you in the creation of your own custom pennant to take home with you. Workshop attendees will first learn layout, design, and lettering techniques appropriate for pennants, and then will be able to create their own pennant using a combination of felt, thread, and other items. Various colors of felt and all other materials will be provided. You just need to come with an idea or two for your pennant you want to create! This workshop will be held at Power and Light Press.
