Join Roz from Be Kind Textiles for a relaxing and informative afternoon of creating natural colours on paper and cloth from local plants, kitchen scraps and traditional dyes.
We’ll cover the minimal equipment you need, safety, mordanting, colour fastness, fibre care and dye sources, as well as how to unlock colours (did you know you can make multiple colours from one plant?!), how to protect and set colours onto cloth and what to look for when collecting dye materials locally.
You will leave with a range fabric and yarn samples from all of the dye pots we create for future reference or for other projects, a bundle of lovely naturally printed watercolour paper you have made and an information booklet after the class outlining the techniques we used. Everything you need to replicate your colours at home!
This class is great for beginners or those who are wanting to further their dyeing practice.
What you'll get
Fabric and yarn samples, and naturally printed watercolour paper that you make on the day, as well as an information booklet so you can continue colouring at home!
what to bring
