Què farem?

This experience could be the beginning of your plastic-free future! You will learn to use California plants for inspiration to do painting, block-printing and stencil-printing to decorate your own beeswax wrap to replace single use plastic wrappings and bags. You can make your cloth into a wax wrap or sew it into a lunch bag if you want. We'll use beeswax to saturate the fabric and make it bacteria resistant and durable for multiple wipes and rinses. Join in this hands-on experience and bring back home your own eco friendly wrap and vibe of Northern California!
Other things to note
This experience is very much hands-on. Be prepared to work with dyes and fabric inks as well as handling beeswax. Please, dress accordingly.

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 two 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.

On aniràs?

The workshop takes place at Auli's Studio. We will work partly inside the studio, but we can work partly outdoors when the weather is nice. 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.

The afternoon session with Auli was extremely pleasurable, not only for the new learning involved in making waxed bags, but for Auli's warm and interesting presence. Her studio is welcoming and full of intriguing weavings, cloths and yarns. She gave generously of her knowledge, including some pointers on natural dyes, although the session was on the waxed bags. She shared stories of her prior life in Finland and of her life here now in Mill Valley. I was very happy with the bags and wrap cloth I made and with the fun I had making them. Auli provided a clear hand-out on how to do this at home. She obviously has had experience teaching, which made the afternoon go very smoothly. I can't recommend Auli and this experience more highly. She is a gem of an instructor.

Such a wonderful morning spent with Auli! We were warmly welcomed to her cute and charming studio, where she explained the different steps in making beeswraps. Once we had decided on patterns and sizes, we were encouraged to let our creativity bloom by printing with an array of wooden stamps and natural media, before coati In the special beeswax mixture. Auli was patient, helpful and a delight to spend time with, our wraps have pride of place in our kitchens and we can’t wait to come back!

This was a truly unique and delightful experience. I will do this again with friends as a special treat. Auli is a wonderful host and teacher with an gorgeous art studio in Mill Valley amidst a private natural garden setting. She picked fresh organic apples from her orchard for our snack and made us feel completely at home. I honestly could have stayed all day. Thank you. Auli. I will be back for another class with you soon.

Fun, useful, easy project that I can repeat at home! Auli was a wonderful teacher - thorough, clear, and had everything set up for multiple creations. Loved the use of natural items from her garden/surrounding home and handmade personalized touches to make the experience so unique. I really liked the beautiful craft space that encouraged creativity. Auli was very patient, kind, funny, and encouraging. I look forward to booking one of her other classes too. Unique experiences with her!!
