Event description
A fun hands-on workshop where we will make a variety of coloured fabric samples from plants, barks, bugs, and a mushroom.

About this Event

In this hands-on workshop, you will create a variety of coloured fabric samples from ancient natural dyes and some local dyes, using the immersion dyeing method. We’ll explore over-dyeing and modifying our colour samples using Iron and Indigo. I will talk about which dye plants grow in our region, how and when to harvest them for dyeing and how to prepare protein/cellulose fibres and fabrics to best accept natural dye. The fabrics we will be working within this workshop are cotton, silk and linen. You will go home with lots of colour samples, knowledge and the ability to dye clothes, fabric, and yarn on your own using natural dyes.

Wear – clothes that can get dirty

Bring – lunch, rubber gloves, a friend!
