Forage, Flower and Fold Natural Dyeing Workshop.
Join Jo from Inside Jo. B at her Textile Studio to discover how to use natural foraged flowers, leaves from your neighbourhood and healing herbs, food scraps from your kitchen and household items to Naturally Dye fabric.
A playfully inspiring two hour workshop where Natural Dyeing basics will be shared on how to Bundle Eco Dye and create with plants and food, plus other natural materials.
All the raw materials and a Pure Silk Scarf 42 x 160cm (Eco dyed scarves RRP $70) will be provided to decorate in all natural delightful colours, unbleached cotton for hammering flower patterns and digital notes with online support.
Early drive from Sydney is peaceful on the M1 or traveling via public transport to the studio takes 1 hour 15 minutes on Newcastle line from Central Station.
Transport from Woy Woy station can be arranged with Jo.B or its an easy walk to location taking 15-20 minutes with plenty of flowers to pick on the way, light snacks and fresh tea awaiting your arrival.
Feel free to bring your own local foraged materials, from your garden and neighbourhood to mark the silk and cotton fabrics. We will spend a short time wondering around my local area to collect some basics for natural dyeing our scarves.
We will also Eco Dye your own t-shirt/singlet or pillow slip from home.(Natural fabrics only and pre-washed). More silk scarves will be available to purchase if preferred.
