9.30am – 2.00pm
Come and learn the art of natural plant dyeing using Rosemary, from our garden in this beautiful workshop.
You will learn how to set up a natural dye pot using the rosemary plant, how to screen print with mordants and other natural dye techniques inspired by Sasha Duerr’s wonderful book ‘Natural Colour’. We will follow one of these projects from start to finish to give you a hands on experience with the natural dyeing process producing gorgeous hues, from teals to dark greys and greens.
You will be dyeing a linen 50x50cm cushion cover on which you would have already screen printed your design and then to finish highlighting your creation you will stitch and/or draw around certain sections and embellish with ribbon. Included will be a duck feather insert so that you can go home and use your new cushion.
We have a large selection of precut stencils for you to choose from so you can create your own custom design. As part of the workshop you will also receive a copy of Sasha Duerr’s ‘Natural Colour’ book (RRP $49.95) so you can go on to explore your natural dyeing passion at home. Sasha’s book gives you step-by-step guides for various plant dye projects for your home and wardrobe.
All materials are included in this workshop so you only need to bring your creative spirit with you. We shall also serve delicious morning tea and lunch while you create your masterpiece.
