  • Free Online Bundle Dye Workshop with Lillstreet Art Center Free Online Bundle Dye Workshop with Lillstreet Art Center

    Lillstreet Art Center - 4401 N Ravenswood

    As part of our Virtual Visiting Artist program, Textiles artist Amy Taylor will join us for a special online workshop on Sunday, May 8 from 10AM–12PM.

    In honor of Mother’s Day, and the nurturing mentors who guide us, Amy will demonstrate Eco-friendly Bundle Dyeing techniques. Bundle dyeing is a method of transferring pigment from botanical materials directly onto fabric, creating unique patterns of color. Work along with Amy as she leads you through the process to create your very own, one-of-a-kind silk scarf using food safe ingredients in your kitchen. Explore the possibilities of onion skins, leftover coffee grounds, tea leaves, turmeric, cochineal, and smashed up avocado pits.

    Optional $10 kits include a silk scarf and some ingredients. Feel free to save your own kitchen scraps to use during the workshop, too! The purchase of kits helps us to pay our Virtual Artists a fair stipend for their time and expertise. 

    This event is family friendly and open to ages 8+ when accompanied by an adult. Our Virtual Artist Program Bundle Dye Workshop is a great way to connect with family and friends, wherever you are located! This is also a great free introduction to try out a class at Lillstreet if you're new to the community! Link to register: https://lillstreet.com/class/18104

    Bon Femmes - 4917 N Damen Avenue

    Join petalpushr at Bon Femmes to shop some of her stunning floral wonders on Saturday, May 7 from 10 - 5 and Sunday, May 8 noon - 5.

    “Amanda Forgash is the Chicago-based botanical artist behind petalpushr. Her current focus is on designing detailed "mini universes" using modified natural materials - works that are meant to transfix and transport the viewer to imagined alien landscapes.

    Amanda’s aesthetic is rooted architectural silhouettes with an abundance of texture and pops of color mixed in with natural elements. She sources unconventional materials like sea barnacles, crystals, grasses, and palm leaves for her dried creations, some of which she hand-paints to give them an otherworldly feel.”
