I am planning a series of Botanical Dyeing and Ceramics Workshops for 2020, but before the end of this year I have an exciting Botanical Dyeing Workshop happening at Ink and Spindle in Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne.
In this workshop you will learn how to achieve a beautiful colour palette naturally, and we will cover the basics from choosing which plants to use, and how we can extract colour from them through bundle dyeing and dye baths. You will also learn how to prepare fabric and yarn for dyeing, and different mordants and modifiers we can use in the process.
You will take home a collection of samples of fabric we will dye together, a finished piece, and the knowledge to continue your experiments at home.
Please bring an apron or clothes you don’t mind staining and a notebook and pen. You can also bring your own lunch, or alternatively get something at one of the cafes at the Convent.
All other materials will be provided, plus morning tea.
