Got any old clothes you might want to vamp up a bit? Here is your chance! Come along to our workshop at SHRUB to learn how to make totally natural dyes and to create your own designs on either a piece of old clothing or some old fabric like bed sheets etc. I would suggest something white and made out of natural fibers – so the dye will fix itself a bit better. This workshop will be over two days so please be able to make both workshops to get the most out of this experience.
Friday 14th October 7pm- 9pm
Saturday 15th October 2pm-5pm The first day is an evening class, where we have a couple of hours of basic dye making, from chopping up the vegetation to blending up the dye stuffs into pastes for screen printing with. To make the most of our time I am planning for us to make up three colours of dyes: blue, yellow and red so we are able to experiment with layering of colours. The second day is that of a bit more creativity and actually getting down to some screen printing. You will be given the opportunity to think what shapes, patterns and colours you want in your newly designed garment or piece of cloth you bring along. We will just be working with stenciling on our designs so think bold shapes and patters to layer on top of each other.
The cost of this workshop is £5 and places are limited, so please book now!
