Daytime

Use a mixture of fresh and dried flowers, and other ephemera to naturally dye silk in this eco–conscious workshop with designer Georgia Bosson.

Learn how to dye silk with bundle dying using natural flora. You will learn how to work with different mordants and dye stuffs to create unique and exciting textile pieces.

Create a unique length of delicate silk that can be used to make a scarf, pillowcase, lavender bags or even beautiful Japanese style Furoshiki gift wrapping.

You will leave with the knowledge and skills required to make your own bundle–dyed items, using simple equipment which can be found in your kitchen.

The workshop fee includes two pieces of silk (either 45 x 45cm or 30 x 90cm approx) and all workshop materials, there will be additional silk to buy on the day should you wish to make more than two pieces.

I had a great time at this workshop! Georgia is knowledgeable, skilled, and kind, she gave lots of guidance and ideas about bundle dyeing and I came home with two beautiful flower-dyed silks!

I really enjoyed the class at Georgia's studio and found the bundle dyeing process to be easy, fun and with some interesting and slightly unpredictable results. The class certainly got me interested in using flowers and natural dyes and I'm inspired to try a few more things at home.

Natural textile dyeing workshop by Georgia Bosson - crafts in London

About your host, Georgia Bosson

Designer Georgia Bosson studied Embroidery at Manchester University. In 2013 she set up the Georgia Bosson studio in Bermondsey where she started to experiment with screen printing and quickly developed her own signature style characterised by geometric designs and bright colours.

All of Georgia's designs start their life as paper cut stencils which when transferred to cloth come to life, she decided to share the excitement that the screen printing process can bring and in 2016 set up a series of workshops teaching others how to translate their ideas onto fabric and mix the perfect colour!

In the past Georgia has run workshops at a variety of venues from Ikea to more intimate classes in her studio. Classes are available at locations accross London and vary from 2.5 hours to a full day experience.
