NATURAL DYING + SHIBORI WORKSHOP

Enjoy an afternoon of learning to identify suitable plants, how to extract colour and even how to get multiple colours from the same plant. We will start with a quick explore of the Merri Creek bank for any suitable plants then return to the studio to prepare the dye pots. There will be a range of colours dependent on seasonal availability, these will include common kitchen scraps, local plants and exotic dyes. You will learn how to use plants to create eco-prints on fabric and open up bundles that have been prepared earlier.

Choose a garment from our rack of pre-loved clothes, pillow cases or table linen to dye in the class indigo vat or purchase one of our organic hemp/cotton tote bags, linen tea towels or cotton scarves to dye and take home.
