Dyeing silk and cotton, and taking home samples of each

Wimbledon (Earlsfield)

£0 pp

6 hour workshop

Beginner

What happens in this class?

You will learn the basic difference in techniques between dyeing plant based fabric ( cotton and linen) and animal based fabric (silk and wool). The morning will be spent dyeing samples of cotton and the afternoon working with silk.

Some of the dyeing techniques include shibori, used in tie-dyeing .

My teaching is not prescriptive. I’ll show you examples and techniques and off you go! My favourite comment from a student was ‘I don’t have a creative bone in my body’ before producing two beautiful silk scarves

Things to remember

Dye stains your hands so protective gloves should be worn. I provide plastic gloves but those with particular requirements should bring their own.

Light refreshments and snacks are provided. If more than that is required, there is a Tesco nearby, and a microwave available.

Lesley made hats for amateur theatre and after making some 30 from horrible craft felt decided to learn how to do it properly. She went to London College of Fashion and learned how to block straw, sinamay and felt, and also how to make sewn hats. She works in a studio in Wimbledon and during the two Open Studios a year listens to what people say about hats. They say they don't suit hats; hats are expensive and only worn once; even if worn more than once the need to be stored; they'll be damaged if packed in
