Do you love flowers? Do you ever wonder how you can take the beauty of botanicals... and wear them??!?
Bettina, of Dye Haus, is a passionate dyer and gardener and often wondered how she could make the beauty of flowers last. Travelling in Japan she was shown a technique which she has now adapted and uses regularly with great success!
Based on the ancient art of 'hapa zome' or flower pounding/hammering, you will learn how to imprint the beauty of flowers onto fabric, and preserve it for years!
Rather than boiling fabric to achieve eucalyptus leaf prints, you will be creating delicate but incredibly vibrant prints on silk with a more time effecitive and gentle process. You will be astounded how clear and bright the prints will be and how quickly and easily they can be achieved.
Join Dye Haus and Work-Shop, as we use nature to create beautiful (and wearable!) works of art!!!
