Come and paint with mother nature and learn the alchemy of creating beautiful colours and prints with plants, flowers and food waste.
Working with ethically sourced materials is an amazing way to create textiles filled with positive intention.
Abi will share her personal collection of bundle dyed swatches for colour inspiration and you will use the techniques learned in this workshop to create a lovely printed silk scarf.
This workshop is the perfect introduction to producing eco-friendly textiles and natural dyeing.
There will be a short break in the middle of the workshop for students to have lunch. There is a cafe conveniently located onsite.

Fabulous class, Abbey is very generous with her knowledge and supportive throughout the entire class. I would definitely recommend this class and am considering doing it again now that I have some basis knowledge of the process and am looking to try it again. Such a great way to spend s Saturday. Thanks Abbbey
I learned new, environmentally friendly techniques for how to dye my own fabrics. I really loved that we were given so many beautiful natural materials to work with and the hands on approach to the workshop.
It was absolutely brilliant. Abi was very prepared and knowledgeable. She managed the time well and it was the best workshop I've ever done!
