Description

Eco Printing & Natural Dyeing

Taught by Nichola Prested

Join us in this full day workshop where we will learn how eco print and dye fabrics and fibres using a variety of local and everyday seasonal plants. You will learn how to prepare and mordant your fibres, the various ways of extracting colour from plants, safety and more.

We will be working with a number of plants on the day to create dye pots in which we will add a selection of fibres. With the dye pots we will experiment with after mordanting, over-dyeing and more. You will also eco-print a silk scarf with leaves and flowers.

You will go home with with a selection of mini skeins of yarn and swatches of fabrics, your own eco printed silk scarf and an info sheet with details of how you can continue natural dyeing at home.

Natural dyes can stain clothing and footwear, so be sure to wear something dark or old!
