Explore natural colours in this eco print workshop !

Discover nature's colour pallet in our natural textile and paper dying workshop. You'll learn how to select and prepare textiles for dying, and how to harvest dye plant materials (flowers, leaves). Then it's time for you to embrace your creativity and put colour to cloth under the guidance of an experienced textile artist.

You’ll explore various ways of applying plant colour prints to fabric and paper to create colourful and beautiful designs.

During this half day course you'll produce a sample, some beautiful paper and two silk scarves to take home to begin your journey into natural textile dying.
