Saturday 21st March 2020, 10am-1pm

This spring workshop will focus on using botanical ingredients to make beautiful natural dyes.  We will be foraging for seasonal flowers, fruits and edibles before each making a dye bath and dying a range of colour swatches, as well as several pure silk ribbons in the final colour of your choice. 

Ros will talk you through how to prepare different fabrics through scouring and mordanting and share tips and techniques of this ancient art. 

We will discuss how to work with nature’s infinite colour palate and look at some of the different natural ingredients that can be used year round to create a range of fabrics.

Ros has worked with fabrics for over 20 years as a buyer for Habitat and has been experimenting with natural dye’s for years - all her work is chemical free. Follow her on Instagram

Price includes morning coffee and pastries from our local community bakery, as well as all materials.
