Private: Botanical Bundle Dyeing

  • Broad Studios 1023 Springdale Road, Unit 6D Austin, TX, 78721 United States (map)

Taught by Kylee Barnard of Silk Diaries!

About The Class:

Learn how to extract natural color from assorted flowers, plants, fruits and tree barks to create your very own one-of-a-kind silk! In this workshop you'll learn the health benefits of silk fiber, the ins and outs of the botanical materials and their respective coloring, and how to bundle it all up with a mordant and steam it to seal the deal. The outcome will be a very organic, unique, and multi-colored print on a silk scarf. While the steaming takes place for two hours, attendees are welcome to leave and come pick up the bundled piece at the studio the next day.

About Kylee:

Kylee received a BFA in Graphic Design from SCAD, but when she accepted a visual design job at IBM after graduation, impostor syndrome was smothering her self-confidence, self-worth and passion. Recalling the comfort she felt from her silk trimmed blanket as a baby, she then utilized her passion for self-expression and color theory to create a brand of silk products that shine light on the issues women face in the workplace.

Drinks & snacks provided.
Doors open 10 minutes before the workshop and close 15 minutes after we begin.
