What you'll do

At this workshop, you will connect to your creativity and discover the magic of natural plants as dye. You will create kaleidoscopic color on cotton and silk through an eco-dyeing activity. You will learn to use wildflowers and seasonal blooms to bundle dye on large silk square scarves. While our bundles steam, you will have time to connect and relax in the garden as the sun sets.
Both pieces will make a memorable gift and are a perfect way to treat yourself and a friend to a creative evening together. You will come away feeling relaxed and inspired. You will take home a cotton bandana and silk scarf, new friends, plus the knowledge to create these on your own!

I design natural textiles and home products created from botanical dye methods and materials. I love dreaming up products for a sustainable artful home and lifestyle. I founded Creative Sundays L.A., a workshop series to inspire others to tap into their creativity and spontaneity while making art. This series of workshops explores the best practices in natural dye methods how to use plants as dye. I have a love and talent for teaching and inspiring others!

This was an incredible way to spend an evening. Hilary brought together an exceptional group of women. She was incredibly accommodating, the snacks and tea were lovely. I felt like learned a lot and left with two very special pieces. I was blown away how easy it was to create both the steam dye and salt scrub, and will absolutely be taking on these crafts with friends in the future. Valuable skills.
