Learn how to achieve beautiful colours with natural dyes using locally sourced plants and traditional dyes. Exploring techniques for both protein and cellulose fibres, focusing on the mordant process (plant and mineral) for both immersion dyeing and direct application of dyes, such as silk-screen printing. We will use resist methods (stitching, wrapping, folding), eco print and solar dyeing. As we work we will also record recipes, samples and document the process. Participants will leave the workshop with a detailed journal / sketchbook that they can continue to use for their future reference.
