Natural Dyeing With Plants - 2 day workshop - Beginners
(16th and 17th November 2019)
The introductory natural dyeing course for beginners covers all the steps from gathering plant material to preparing it for use in a dye bath, using it as a background colour and as a printing element on the fabric.
Each course varies slightly, as students have different needs and projects they want to work on, so we will cover all the basics and then work on particular areas that are of interest to the group. This is very much a practical course, which covers not just one fibre group, but all fabric/fibre groups suitable for this type of dyeing. In particular we spend time on how to prepare your fabrics and fibres beforehand so your results are more successful.
If you’re new to this type of dyeing or if you have tried it before, but have been disappointed with your results, once you’ve attended this workshop you will be more confident and happier with your dyeing outcomes.
