Notify me when back in stock

Spend the day experimenting with simple natural dye techniques using materials readily available in our kitchens, gardens & neighbourhoods to create a soothing rainbow of beautiful natural colours.  

Join me at my studio in Harolds Cross for this 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-hour workshop, you will learn everything needed to create colours naturally & sustainably. 

This workshop is perfect for everyone & anyone wanting to spend a morning being creative and learning a new hobby, for those interested in the process & not sure where to begin. Natural dyeing is a great skill that lends itself to many facets of life, being able to extract colour from plants and dye your own textiles or garments is invaluable. 

You will have the opportunity to dye a piece 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 and 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 workshop will cover: 

  • Understanding fibre
  • Preparing fibre
  • Tools & equipment 
  • Mordanting different fibres
  • Selecting plants to dye with
  • Creating dye baths
  • Dyeing textiles
  • Expanding your palette
