Nightshades Workshop is a small studio near the Pedernales River outside Austin, Texas.  It is born of the ongoing study of flora and fauna, natural dyes, native landscapes, and herbal medicine, the lifelong challenge and joy of hand work, and growing up with a grandmother who slept on satin pillowcases to keep her hair set from frizzing.  

 Welcome, and thank you for spending time with us.
