Spend an evening experimenting with natural dyes and learning new textile techniques

In this 3 hour practical workshop you will learn about the textile technique of bundle dyeing using natural dyes foraged from local plants, seaweed and steam. You will learn the theory with a talk and demonstration and use these ideas on your own piece of organic silk.

Each person will have a 50 x 140cm length of organic British grown silk to make into a scarf and as part of the evening you will also make your own set of 5 eco gift cards using wild inks.

All of the required materials and equipment will be provided. You may wish to bring gloves or an apron and a notebook or camera. If you have any additional flowers and leaves you would like to bring to try bundle dyeing with, you are welcome.
