описание на събитието
During this introduction to natural dyeing, we will explore the wide range of colours available to us from the natural world, from deep indigo blues to soft avocado skin pinks. Using a wide range of natural dye produce we will create a whole spectrum of colour, exploring different resist methods to create patterns.
You will be encouraged to work on developing your own projects within the dyeing classes and to think about how you could use natural dyeing. For example, if you are a keen knitter, you could think about dyeing yarns or creating some interesting effects through dip or space dyeing.
You will be supplied with fabric for test pieces and experimentation but will be encouraged to expand this using your own fabrics, fibres or yarns.
