Natural Dyes Workshop
Forage: Wild Colours with Cath Lewis
25.06.22, 10:00 – 15:00
In this short introduction workshop, participants will delve into a world of colour on cloth using local plant sources and found objects.
You will learn to source plants for dyes by ethically foraging, using garden plants and by exploring dyes from sustainable natural dye producers and found objects.
We will extract colours with immersion dyeing, direct printing, and simple fabric manipulation with bound resist (clamping and tying) to create interesting patterns.
