Event description
A natural colour workshop that will guide you through different techniques to add colour to cloth using plants and botanicals.

About this event

This workshop is part of our Autumn / Winter series of botanical studies workshops celebrating nature and creativity. In these sessions participants will be given time to study and learn new skills from creatives, artists, designers and horticulturalists.

Our dye workshop is an in-depth exploration into natural colour with artist Ffion Taverner. The aim of the session is to provide a playful but informative space. Ffion will guide you through a number of techniques to extract, experiment and explore creatively with colour derived from plants, fruits and botanicals.

Ffion champions an emphasis on accessible and experimental techniques like bundle dyeing and overlaying. The workshop will demonstrate how certain materials can be used for dyeing, how we can prepare them using traditional mordants and how to create dye baths and create a spectrum of seasonal colour.

The session lasts 3 hours and gives you plenty of time to learn, explore and be creative. All materials are provided for this workshop but please bring an apron to the session as we might get a little messy. With mulled hot drinks and tasty treats this workshop is set to brighten these darker months.

Limited spaces available.

About Ffion:

Natural colour has taken Ffion to Peru where she completed a Artist Residency specialising in Natural Colour as well as The Netherlands where she was working for Claudy Jongstra working in the Dye Studio. Currently based on an organic vegetable and flower farm, Ffion is working closely with the soil - growing, harvesting, collecting, tending and foraging. She is passionate about sharing the power of natural colour with others, emphasising accessible and experimental techniques that allow folk to spend time creating, focussing on creative energy and working with their surroundings.
