DYEING WITH PLANTS & INDIGO
Join us in this full day workshop where we will learn how 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, modifying, works pace setup safety and more. We will then experiment with over dyeing with Indigo to create even more colours!
You will go home with swatches of yarn and fabrics from each dye pot for your own records and an info sheet with details of how you can continue natural dyeing at home.
- Plastic bags to take home your samples
- An apron or old clothes you don't mind getting stained
- A notebook and pen
- Lunch (or you can walk the short distance to the local cafe's) We have a fridge sandwich press and microwave
Natural dyes can stain clothing and footwear, so be sure to wear something old!
