Natural Dyeing with Botanical Ingridents - 30th April and 8th May
Please join us in the tipi for a day of learning how to naturally dye fabrics into a pretty picture for your home.
The day will begin with talking through the earlier process required (preparation of silk, mordanting etc etc) and a demonstration of how to create the art via bundle dying and then the practical side will begin and you'll be diving in to create your own piece.
You will choose what to include on your silk from all the ingredients on our central table.
We will have prepared the silk and the items in advance to shorten the length of work involved so you just have to do the fun bit!
After the process, a compulsory break for lunch whilst the magic happens. Returning to the tipi to visit your work and discovering the beauty within and we will then show you how to frame your piece of art once it's dried.
All workshop items, morning coffee and a delicious Spring two course lunch is included in the price of the workshop (but drinks during lunch are not).
We are working in a socially distant manner and you will be spaced out during the workshop. Hand sanitiser is readily available every time you have touched something and teachers shall wear masks for close work.
The workshop will start at 10.30 - 3pm.
