Explore how colours are extracted from plants, flowers and vegetables to create beautiful textures and patterns on textiles using bundle dyeing techniques.
Learn how to arrange different parts of flowers and plants on fabrics and prepare steam baths for bundle dyeing. You will work with natural fabrics (cotton, organic bamboo silk) and use modifiers to shift colours of the dyed pieces.
You’ll be guided through the process in a step by step way with the guidance of our expert teaching artist. The skills you gain from this workshop will allow you to continue developing your dyeing practice at home.
Who is the workshop for?
This workshop is suitable for adults who are curious about natural colour and bundle dyeing techniques. Complete beginners are welcome to learn bundle dyeing skills from scratch, as well as natural dyeing enthusiasts who would like a refresher to improve their existing skills.
Do I need to bring anything?
We will provide a selection of textile material swatches and natural resources to make the dye baths from. If you have any small natural fabric pieces to try you may wish to bring these. We recommend you wear clothes which can get dirty or bring an apron. Gloves will be provided. You also may like to bring a notebook or sketchbook with you to take notes and store your colour swatches.
