Natural Dyeing With Plants: From Beginner to Breathtaking

All you need to know to get you started and dyeing your own colourful fabrics and fibres.

2 day workshop - Beginners
Saturday, 18th and Sunday, 19th November 2017 or
Thursday, 23rd and Friday, 24th November 2017

Natural dyeing with plants, also known as eco dyeing, is not only a fun thing to do, but it’s also a very organic and mindful way to create your own clothes and homewares. Working with material from your own garden or local area, with practice, you will learn how to recognise which plants and their various parts can be used to achieve a wide range of colours, textures and patterns on your fabrics.

This 2-day, in-depth workshop will show you how to sustainably and responsibly source plant material, prepare it and use it to dye silk, wool and cotton fibres and fabrics. All aspects of dyeing with plants will be covered, from the basics to more complex techniques. The course is especially designed to give you extensive practical experience, fast-track your learning and most importantly, inspire and support you, so you can confidently continue with your own natural dyeing at home.
