Event description

Description

Join SALT Textiles for an evening of natural dyeing and shibori.

Throughout the workshop you'll gain a practical insight into the slow processes involved in making your own dyes, experiencing first-hand how slow methods of making sit in relation to our fast-fabric culture today.

Working with plant and food matter you'll learn how to extract colour at home, giving your waste a second life. Tthrough experimenting with various Shibori techniques you'll be guided through manipulating the fabric to expose patterns and prints.

We'll be working on a SALT bag, yours to take home and use after.

- natural fibres
