Day 1 Natural Dyeing – an introduction
The majority of natural dyes are vegetable dyes from plant sources – roots, berries, bark, leaves, and wood and other biological sources such as fungi and lichens. You will make a series of samples and document/record/label your findings. The aim will be to equip you with sufficient skills to get started at home after the course.
Day 2 Eco-Print –
This is a fascinating way of printing onto fabric. You will use flowers and leaves from the location grounds in a contact printing method that allows them to transfer their colour, texture and patterns. The effects and results you can get from a range of plants is fascinating. This course is an exploration into the surprising and exciting effects that can be achieved by wrapping plants in cloth and processing the bundles through a simmer or steam process. You will make a few practice bundles before bundling a full-sized silk scarf.
Maximum number of places – 6 Cost £190 incl. £25 fabric and other media = £190
