Come by and say hi at the Echo Park Craft Fair this weekend. I’ll be exhibiting prints!
The Echo Park Craft Fair runs from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Despite its name, the event has moved to downtown L.A., at 821 E. 3rd St., in the Arts District. Admission is free.
Come hungry! We’ll have my favorite cold pressed Moon Juice, Handsome coffee and Alejandra making her amazing tortillas and tacos.
On Saturday we will be serving wine and beer from 5-7pm and Kevin from Mohawk will be DJing. It’s gonna be fun, bring your friends.
Happy Mother’s Day weekend! I look forward to seeing you!! XOXOX, Britt

Cochineal Dying Workshop
Just when I thought my devotion to craft had reached an all time high, I received and invitation to a dying workshop, led by Britt Browne and co-hosted by Beatrice Valenzuela at her home in Echo Park. The theme was Cochineal, a tiny insect that lives on cacti and, when ground, becomes a gorgeous powder that is used for dying. Depending on the insect’s region of origin, the color varies from deep magenta to the brightest red.Once Britt gave us the rundown on the process, we spent hours dying pieces of linen, eggs, paper and more in four different dye baths. We experimented with painting stripes, overdying and lots of other techniques. The whole experience felt like an exciting adventure, like you never knew exactly what you were going to get.
Keeping with the theme of pinks and reds, Bea put together a gorgeous spread of oxtail and red beans, pickled tomatoes, beets and pink olives (all on my Pink God’s Eye Runner). The day ended with a cocktail as we kicked our feet up and admired the rows of pink and red sheets of linens, drying in the breeze. Such a beautiful afternoon.
Please join Bea and I for an afternoon of LA COCHINILLA!
