We are beyond excited to offer an opportunity to gather with our long time friend and alchemist Jennette Nielsen of Cauldron & Hive. Lets slow down time and spend two days together over the autumnal equinox, immersed in a bundle dye workshop at ‘the fabricated & the found’ ATELIER in Carnation WA, where we will use found and foraged botanicals, flora and fauna, and the transformative alchemy of the dye cauldron, to fabricate stunning silk yardage.


On day one we will take time to create simple talismans to identify our bundles in the community cauldron before slow~stitching sacred marks on our expanse of silk. Then we will intuitively collect the botanical offerings we are drawn to and discuss thoroughly and learn deeply how to effectively and beautifully eco-dye our silk cloth, which when finished, can be used and enjoyed in a myriad of ways.


On day two, we will loiter with intent to witness the wonder and enchantment that happens in the dye pot overnight as we retrieve our botanical bundles from the cauldron and begin the unbundling and finishing process.


At the end of the two days you will not only come away with a gorgeous botanical/eco bundle dyed XL square of silk, but also with a potent understanding of the process to replicate the magic at home! 


NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! everyone is welcome in this safe space!
