6 hour workshop
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
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.
