Beginners Guide To Natural Dyeing Workshop | 11th June
My next in-person workshop will take place on Saturday the 11th of June & I hope you can join me for a day of creativity & colour.
I have really missed hosting workshops, I am so grateful to be able to teach & share the magic of natural dyes with others.The workshop will cover everything you need to know to learn how to create beautiful, long-lasting natural colour simply & enjoyably.
We will move through the process of natural dyeing from start to finish, I'll cover tools and equipment, we'll look at the different types of fibres & how to work with them. You'll learn how to prepare your fibres for both mordanting (fixing the dye to the fibre) & the dye pot. We will look at mordanting, seasonal dye plants & colours, preparing plants & making dye pots, extracting dye, modifying (changing) your colours and dyeing your fibres. By the end of the workshop you will understand how the process works & have the skills needed to start naturally dyeing your fibres or textiles confidently.
To keep the vibes good, class size will be limited.
When: Saturday 11th June
Where: Homestudios, Harold's Cross, D6W
