Join me in my studio for a morning of creativity, inspiration and fun. Experiment with simple natural dye techniques using materials readily available in our kitchens, gardens & neighbourhoods.
Learn how to create a soothing rainbow of beautiful natural colours & naturally dye your own scarf in a colour of your choice. If you have ever wanted to learn how to naturally dye, extract colour from plants, or learn about sources of natural colour, this class is the perfect starting point.
This is a hands-on workshop where you will learn all the basics of the natural dyeing process. Together we will cover everything involved in extracting dye from plants & applying this to fabrics & fibres. From this 4.5-hour workshop, you will learn the steps required to create colours naturally & sustainably.
Do I need to bring anything?
You will have the opportunity to dye your own scarf during class & create a journal filled with naturally dyed swatches to take home. All materials will be provided and you will leave with a solid understanding of natural dyeing & confidence in your newfound skills.
Apart from what we will dye in class, you are welcome to bring 1-3 small pieces of your own to dye. Participants often like to bring old t-shirts, tops, napkins, pillowcases etc., this is completely optional.
All materials & light lunch are provided
