Found & Foraged Natural Dyeing



Description

Join Roz from Be Kind Textiles for a relaxing and informative afternoon of creating natural colours on paper and cloth from local plants, kitchen scraps and traditional dyes.

You will gain understanding of how to unlock colours, how to protect and set colours onto cloth and what to look for when collecting dye materials locally. Minimal chemicals are used in the class and you will learn how to extract multiple colours from one plant!

You will get to take away fabric and yarn samples from all of the dye pots we create for future reference or to use for other projects, a bundle of lovely naturally printed watercolour paper you have made and an information booklet after the class outlining the techniques we used.

This class is great for beginners or those who are wanting to further their dyeing practice.

My first attempt on extracting natural dye. Roz was fantastic. She answered any question asked, even those outside the beginners’ syllabus. 3 hours gone so quickly, it felt like 1/2 hour. I also like the space where the workshop was. Very conducive to learning craft, it’s open & spacious and with the heater on, it’s comfortable & warm.

Adored spending the afternoon exploring the different methods of botanical dyeing with yarn and fabric. Roz was such a vessel of knowledge and it was easy to follow her instructions the whole way through. Great venue, loads of room and light but it was a warm day and I would be prepared to pay a little bit more to have afternoon tea provided too :)

Relaxed, fun and informative afternoon with a lovely teacher and group.... learning about natural dyeing techniques, with found and foraged objects. Very hands on and great information to take away and try ourselves.
