Flower-Dyed Silk (bundle dyeing with flowers, plants and herbs) ・ Friday, March 29

6-9 PM

at Assembly Studio-- 325 21 St W, at Ave D

with Blaine Lunsford @prairiehoneycreative



Experience the magic of natural dye— a rainbow created with plants, flowers, herbs, and spices. You’ll discover a beautiful, attainable way to create unique textiles for your home and wardrobe .

A medium-sized silk square will be prepared for you prior to the workshop, which you will dye yourself with the plants of your choice, selecting plants and methods based on expert guidance and finished samples. Participants will take home their finished bundle-dyed silk textile, each one completely unique. These pieces are stunning in the home or worn as a scarf.

As we wait for the dyeing alchemy to take hold, topics discussed will include: how to properly prep a textile so that color steadfastness is vibrant and longlasting, the history and science of plant dyes, and more.


This is a beginner workshop. All supplies provided.

Blaine has been working with plant dyes for almost three years.  She hasalways loved playing with color theory and had a passion for textiles, slow and sustainable fashion. The two worlds collided as she was travelling Asia, where she practiced making dye extracts from natural sources like food compost, teas, flowers and spices.  Eventually experimenting with Bundle Dye methods, where the plant/flower/herb color is imprinted and steamed right into a properly prepared textile/garment. She self taught through extensive research, and eventually found herselfworking with Dye Enthusiasts and Masters in countries such as Sri Lanka and Guatemala. Bundle Dyeing is close to her heart because it is one of the first ways she discovered how to use natural color and how to get more out of a textile she thought needed some new life. She loves how each piece done with a bundle dye method is completely unique and cannot be recreated.
