Introduction to Natural Dyes one-day course

Introduction to Natural Dyes

Saturday 13 July 2024, 11 am – 4 pm at Hawkwood Nursery

Learn how to extract colour from plants, in a step-by-step process from preparing your fabric to harvesting plants and making a dye vat.

We will start the day with a guided walk around the beautiful Hawkwood site in full abundance. Learn how to identify plants with pigments and which plants are more colourfast.

Returning to the kitchen, we will experiment with different wild plants, and kitchen waste to create individual pieces for you to take home. Techniques you will learn include shibori, tie and dye and botanical contact printing.

This workshop will equip you to continue your natural dyeing journey from your own kitchen.

This workshop will be led by OrganicLea coop member Dorothy Spencer along with Freia Groves, both with backgrounds in plant-based practices.

There will be an hour for lunch, between 1pm – 2pm, and please bring your own lunch.
