During this workshop, you will discover the beauty of natural dyes using locally foraged plants, leaves and botanical extracts. You will start to create your own dye journal which will help you keep record of the process of unearthing the potential colour in plants. Using wool, silk, cotton and linen, you will learn how to prepare fabric with mordants before dyeing. You will later practice bundle dyeing, dip dyeing, salt resist, and shibori resist and explore various techniques to design and create exciting textiles on fabrics, tote bags and t-shirts.
