About the Event
In this small group workshop we will explore eco dyeing using natural materials such as leaves, onion skins, avocado seeds, flowers, berries to dye two pieces of silk that can be used then for a scarf, to wrap a gift or to form part of another project.
We'll also explore Japanese shibori techniques which is a method to make patterns on fabric by exposing only some portions of the fabric to dye. Tie, pinch, fold, concertina, clamp and stitch your fabric then dye it.
This workshop is a great opportunity to enjoy handmade processes and have fun learning how to continue these traditional crafts.
$40 + $10 materials fee. Includes all materials and tools - fabric, natural materials, resists, pots.
Wear old clothes and covered shoes. Also you may have some damp pieces to take home so an old shopping bag might be useful.
