Natural Dyeing Series

Natural Dyeing Series

140.00

DESCRIPTION

From forages around our gardens, farms and other green spaces we can collect quite a range of color producing plants from Mother Nature:  bright yellows, greens, orange, pinks greys and earthy browns and reds.

In these workshops, each slightly different, we explore color, the essence of natural dyeing.

 Some truths: 

1) Natural dyeing takes longer than chemical dyeing.

2) Yes, colors can (often do) fade-some more than others.

But with care you can enjoy these “living” colors for a long time—and revel in their natural beauty. 

Each class or workshop varies slightly from learning how to dye with fresh, frozen and dried flowers; creating beautiful fiber pieces on silk and cotton to using foraged materials: berries, bark and vegetables to explore the art of making natural inks and natural mark making tools.

Natural dyes make us aware of seasonal changes and allow us to step away from chemicals-helping the user, wearer and our planet earth.
