Join us and Botanical Inks to to play with a range of surface application processes, including bundle dyeing, Shibori tie dye, painting, Hapazome and dye injecting, using a range of natural dye materials, including fresh and dried flowers, berries and leaves; powder pigments, liquid dyes and paints. Everything used will be made from botanicals and minerals, along with some insect dyes and organic British silk. IMG_4620IMG_4480 . You will be given an introduction to the different techniques, and have an open session for getting creative. This is a beginner's class, however more experienced natural dyers may also enjoy the opportunity to explore using a mixture of techniques together to create something new and truly distinctive. You will leave with a new perspective on how to use natural dyes creatively, without boundaries, and with your own naturally dyed length of silk which you may use to make a scarf, cushion cover or other project. static1.squarespace Botanical Inks provides a pioneering model for circular textile production systems in the UK, based on human-scale and biologically nutritious design. A length of organic British silk will be provided and included in class for you to use, and there will also be more available to buy at an additional cost. static1.squarespace-1+3.34.30+PMIMG_6312 IMG_7037IMG_5317 Tea and coffee will be provided.
