Sister Mollusk's plant dyed goods are meant to spark curiosity for the natural world.
She collects plants and minerals for dyes from the flowered fields, shadowed forests, and weed lined roadways of Northwestern Ontario. She is based in Thunder Bay, located in Robinson-Superior treaty territory on the traditional lands of Fort William First Nation. Sister Mollusk draws on traditional techniques and continuous experimentation to create one of a kind, sustainable pieces.
She also teaches workshops exploring natural dyes, traditional craft, and folklore. Past workshops include:
- Natural Colour for Kids - A.C. Hunter Children’s Library, St. John’s, NL
- Clotheslines and Conversation: An Afternoon of Women’s Work, Logy Bay Museum, NL
- Dyeing with Food Waste, Roots to Harvest, Thunder Bay
- Flower Magic: Abstract Bundle Dyeing, Thunder Bay Art Gallery
