Event description

Description

In this hands-on workshop, you will create a variety of coloured fabric samples from ancient natural dyes, using the immersion dyeing method. We will discuss 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, linen, and wool. You will go home with lots of knowledge and the ability to dye clothes, fabric, and yarn on your own using either store-bought natural dyes or ones you have foraged yourself.

Wear – clothes that can get dirty

Bring – lunch, rubber gloves, a friend!
