Kristine Vejar is a natural dyer, teacher, owner of A Verb for Keeping Warm, and author of The Modern Natural Dyer (Abrams, 2015).
A Verb for Keeping Warm occupies a 1700 square foot space in Oakland, California and is comprised of a shop selling yarn, fiber, and fabric, two classrooms, two dye studios, and a natural dye garden. A Verb for Keeping Warm incorporates Kristine Vejar’s love for fiber and community. Through classes focused upon natural dyeing, knitting, sewing, spinning and weaving, and via the materials she carries, many of which support US based farms and manufacturing, she strives to preserve longstanding textile traditions and to support others working to create a textile-centered art practice.
