First Natural Dye Workshop Of The Year
Using ingredients & plants from our kitchens, gardens & neighbourhoods, you will learn how to prepare your fabric so the colour binds to the fibre, prepare dye baths, extract dye & dye your fibre.
Natural colour is available to us from so many different sources such as roots, bark, branches, seeds, flowers, leaves, fungi & lichen. I will be talking about where to look for natural colour, which plants to use throughout the year and how to prepare these for success.
This is a hands on workshop, so you will be busy experimenting, creating dye baths and dyeing your fibre. You will get the opportunity to document everything as you go, create a natural dye swatch book to take home with you and immerse yourself in the process of natural dyeing.
This class is perfect for anyone interested in creating safe, sustainable, natural colours. You don't need any previous experience to attend.

These workshops are always a wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning, learn a new skill and meet other like minded humans. I'll provide lunch, tea, refreshments, snacks and all the materials needed, all you have to bring is your self. I look forward to welcoming you to my studio x Kathryn
