Forage, Flower and Fold Eco Natural Dyeing Workshop.
Join Jo from Inside Jo. B 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 and half 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. We will also use flowers, food, weeds and leaves to create eco print patterns on raw cotton with a basic technique simple to do with children.
Perfect workshop to do with a child as part for the summer Sunday fun day. I'm offering a discount of 30% off for under 18's for the crafty teenager or young one in your life.
All the raw materials and a Pure Silk Scarf 45 x 160cm will be provided to decorate in all natural delightful colours, plenty of unbleached cotton to dye and print and digital notes with online support available after with Facebook group to share results and ask questions to other natural dyers .
Message me if you are vegan and want a cotton scarf instead of silk that can be provided. More scarves will be available to purchase if you want to create gifts for $18 each.
Feel free to bring your own local foraged materials, from your garden and neighbourhood to mark the silk and cotton fabrics.
We will also Eco Dye your own t-shirt/singlet or light pillow slip from home. (Natural fabrics only and pre-washed). If you want to bring your own fabric no bigger than 1/2 a meter thanks. Brewed natural dyes will be available to dip dye some pieces simple recipes from food waste, herbs and leafy rusty metals so much to share.
