London | Pattern Making with Natural Pigments | September 8th 2018
Expand your natural dyeing skills into a whole new realm using natural dye extracts & steam bundling. In this workshop you will learn how to directly imprint cloth with an unlimited range of incredible patterns using natural dye extracts and pigments.
This workshop will cover the basics in steam bundling, preparing your fabric for dyeing, suitable fabrics, how to directly transfer extracts, etc. to create beautiful patterns & palettes by imprinting the pigments directly onto textiles. We will work with a variety of different Irish Linens & Silk to see how natural dyes impart their colour onto different fibre. You will leave with the skills, knowledge & confidence of how to create beautiful patterns on cloth using this specific technique.
This workshop is not to be confused with Eco-printing as we will be using pigments and extracts not leaves, flowers or petals which are traditionally used in eco-printing.
The workshop will take place in the beautiful studio of the very talented Kristen Perers on Saturday September 8th from 10-3pm at The Flower Factory in East London.
All materials will be provided and you will leave with multiple finished samples made in class and a final piece to take home.
Class size is limited & our workshops fill up fast so sign up early to avoid disappointment. If you have any questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
