Pits and skins from avocados for the lovely shades of mauve — marigold for the rich and golden yellow. These are my favorite natural colors for this Summer.
A blend of rich, warm pinks and reds with subtle golden bursts throughout. Bright and cheerful, this scarf adds a pop of color without being overwhelmingly saturated.
Wollam Gardens is an amazing farm just an hour outside of DC. I've been lucky enough to teach workshops on the property and learn how to extract color from a number of their flowers and plants. One of the most gratifying colors I've extracted is this deep golden yellow so unique to the marigold flower.
Spatial and majestic, this scarf brings to mind the unknown depths of the universe. A beautiful union of complementary colors.
Bundle dyeing is a simple way to bring together plants, flowers and fiber. A resourceful way to use flowers that otherwise might not make it to market, this form of eco-printing allows for improvisation and a natural, chaotic beauty.
An experiment with new folding techniques that yielded a dynamic pattern. Open and airy, the negative white space of the fabric is as engaging as the triangles throughout.
In the winter, we knit. A selection of warm, cozy hats in a wide range of colors. Made with or without pom poms. Modeled by the ever-so-talented and badass women: Crystal & Nicole.
Two years ago I saw a picture of an enormous, chunky wool rug online and I had to have it — so I learned how to make one (or two, or three, or four). These rugs are so plush and an incredible luxury for your toes. In a selection of colors: off-white, light grey, dark grey.
Bringing together two of my favorite crafts: dyeing and crocheting. These plant hangers are first tie dyed then crocheted and braided to house your favorite little house plant.
An exploration of shibori techniques resulted in crisp lines and a controlled yet fluid pattern. I created these envelope cases for several pillow inserts, taking my dyed goods to the next level of home enjoyment.
A rainbow assortment of candy color silk swatches. I'm constantly experimenting with color palettes and looking for new combinations of shades and textures.
Subtle shades of blue that recall soft, ocean waves in the heat of Summer. The gradual shifts of blue allow the eye to travel and submerge oneself in the cool, shimmering memories of swimming in the sea.
