Eco Dyeing (also called leaf print or eco print) is a direct contact dye method drawing out pigments from leaves into fabric.

In this workshop you will learn about how to successful eco dye on protein fibres (silk). We will go for a short stroll outside our room to collect some plant material, which we will then use to create our silk bundles. Let’s get wild!

You will learn:
- about plants and fabrics
- equipment
- mordants
- 2 different bundle techniques

Included in the workshop fee are 2 scarf size pieces of silk and a handout with mordant recipes, dye plants, tips, sources etc.

Tools and materials for the workshop are provided, but bring an old towel, camera and leaves, more info closer to the date.

$ 130 (bring your own lunch), refreshments provided

You can book a ticket for the reserve on the day to go for a walk during lunch or after the workshop (optional)
