Natural Dyeing : Intensive Course

This course is only taught in English.

A great way to explore the wonders of Natural Dyeing more deeply, this intensive course takes you through all the steps! Students will learn and practice preparing and dyeing fabric with plants from start to finish, as well as different ways to play and experiment with colour variations. Four different dye plants will be used.

Students should bring their own material they would like to dye. This is a great way to give old or worn garments a new life! You can also bring a bigger piece of fabric to use in future sewing projects. (Note: Fabric must be made of natural fibre such as silk, wool, cotton, linen)

Each student will go home with a sample booklet for reference, notes and dye recipes for further exploration, and their own naturally dyed fabric.

All other materials (including dyes, tools, + sample booklet) are provided + lunch is included.

Weather permitting, this course will take place outside in the garden.
