ECO PRINTING AND NATURAL DYEING
This workshop is held at Yakedy Yak, Highpoint Shopping Centre.
Join us in this full day workshop where we will learn how eco print and dye fabrics and fibres using a variety of local and everyday seasonal plants. You will learn how to prepare and mordant your fibres, the various ways of extracting colour from plants, safety and more.
We will be working with a number of plants on the day to create dye pots in which we will add a selection of fibres. With the dye pots we will experiment with after mordanting, over-dyeing and more. You will also eco-print silk with leaves and flowers.
You will go home with swatches of yarn and fabrics, your own eco printed silk and an info sheet with details of how you can continue natural dyeing at home.
