The Culler Studio is a working art studio that focuses on earth pigments, ancient and exotic, and locally-gathered botanicals to create unique colors in art. Sara Ashford, whose family sported the surname “Culler,” seemed destined to develop a love for pigment. After many years, she merged her love with color with her intensive knowledge of textiles to open the Culler Studio

Culler Studio dyed fabric in pale rust/orange and shades of gray.Sara opens up her studio for classes where folks come to learn her techniques to create wearable art such as scarves, sarongs, and other clothing. Sara creates and helps students create rich, colorful patterns on fabric using local flora and natural dyes and utilizes techniques such as natural dyeing, flower pounding, and eco-print bundling.

Flowers and other plants from the Dye Garden (southeast corner of the TwispWorks Campus) are also used to make natural dyes.
