Taster - Eco-dyeing - One Day

Taster - Eco-dyeing - One Day

Experience the wonderful range of natural colours and botanical prints achieved with plants. Join Sam Tannous to find out how natural dyeing and printing processes can be used to produce wonderful textiles and papers.

This one-day class will give you a “taste” of the art of natural dyeing and printing; using materials such as onion skins, eucalyptus leaves, dried barks and flowers. Bring your own wool or silk, fabrics, watercolour papers, and Stonehenge printmaking papers to press between tiles and steam; to achieve beautiful, unique prints. 

A list of plants and flowers will be provided so you can bring along some of your own materials for printing and sharing. There will be extra fabrics and papers for purchase on the day.

Plant matter, dye pots, mordants, etc. are included in the material fee.

Suitable for all levels of experience.
