Event description

Description

Saturday 27 June 11:00-16:00

Explore the exciting world of natural dyeing on our one day workshop. Using a variety of natural dyes including onion skins, turmeric, madder and logwood you’ll learn how to dye natural fabrics such as cotton, silk and linen. You’ll also gain an understanding of how mordants can be used to alter the colours you can achieve.
You’ll come away from the workshop with a colour chart of small fabric samples and some skills to develop further at home.

Who is the workshop for?

This course is suitable for adults who are complete beginners or those who wish to refresh their skills in textiles. Those with an understanding of the process can use the day to develop their skills and gain tutor advice and guidance.

Do I need to bring anything?

Materials including small fabric swatches, mordants and natural dyes will be provided. You may wish to bring some more fabrics to test along with you. If you have any natural dyes you wish to try feel free to bring these on the day.
Refreshments will be provided but you may wish to bring some lunch along with you.
