Rebecca Burgess is a fifth generation resident of the watershed where her great grandmother and grandfather once spent afternoons canoeing, swimming, and fishing along the banks of the creek. Her connection to the landscape is a lens for her creative process. Working as an ecological restoration educator, curricula developer, author, and textile artist—her work is imbued with a commitment and respect for place. Rebecca founded Ecologicalarts in 2005, an organization dedicated to creating, reviving, and teaching textile art forms that utilize botanical resources in a manner that promotes the health and regenerative processes of the ecosystem. Rebecca’s is the author of the book Harvesting Color. Her textiles have been featured in the internationally circulated book Print and Production Finishes for Sustainable Design (2009). She writes for eco-blogs, and has been featured by numerous online periodicals.

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) at 11 am and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
