We have been contacted by Liz Roberts with details of two Eco Dye Workshops happening in April and which may be of interest.
Saturday April 6th 10.30 – 4.30 at St James Centre Stonesfield OX29 8PP
Eco Printing using flowers and leaves. Students will learn how to make beautiful prints and patterns on cloth and paper by capturing colours directly from nature using contact printing and steam.
Sunday 7th April 10.30 – 4.30 in Bletchingdon OX5 3DP
Indigo and Shibori (Japanese resist) Students will learn how to make up an ORGANIC INDIGO SUGAR VAT (no nasty chemicals) and using Japanese shibori techniques will create exquisite and unique samples on cloth.
£65 per day with all basic materials provided. There will also be an opportunity to purchase some ‘special’ cloth and plain silk scarves to dye.Refreshments are provided all day, please bring something for lunch to share. It is not necessary to attend both days but it will be more fulfilling if you do. Both courses are suitable for all levels.
A reservation is necessary as courses tend to book up quickly. For more information and to secure your place with a £20 deposit per day please contact Nikola on firstname.lastname@example.org
