Natural Dyeing and Felting
June 6, 2015 | 12:00 am
In this 3.5 hour mini textile workshop you will be amazed at what you will achieve!
Beginning with the exploration and preparation of a natural dye bath you will then be invited to create your very own natural dye masterpiece. Ash will teach you the different ways you can prepare your fabric and encourage you to experiment with different materials. Dyeing using colour found in our surroundings produces brilliant and unexpected results.*
While the dye bath works its magic you will learn the technique of felting. Using wool tops Ash will demonstrate how to create a beautiful piece of felt while discussing what can be achieved using this technique. This is a simple and calming process.
*Please note that the natural dyeing process takes up to a week. Students not attending the following workshop will be able to collect their work at a suitable time.
