Description

Join Roz Slade for an all day workshop of extracting colour from local plants, flowers and food to dye fibres and fabric. Working with sustainable practices that utilise your surrounding environment, learn how to identify suitable dye sources, extract multiple colours from one plant and methods to preserve and set the dyes. Create an eco-print from leaves and flowers on fabric and paper. And experiment with resist dyeing in a natural indigo vat. Each participant will walk away with samples of the dye pots and an information sheet to continue botanical dyeing at home.
