Come and get messy with mother nature and explore the ancient art of using botanicals and food waste to create beautiful colours and patterns on natural fibres. A multi-sensory experience that will enable you to slow-down and create mindfully.

Using the wonderful technique of bundle dyeing, we will use sustainably sourced and foraged materials to create a unique silk scarf.

Whilst our bundles steam and evolve, we will play with the magic of alchemy by introducing natural modifiers to create a rainbow of possibilities.

Abi will guide you through…

  • Botanicals and food waste and the colours they yield
  • Natural fibres and fabric preparation with mordants
  • Natural pH colour modifiers
  • The art of bundle dyeing through wrapping and steaming
