10.30am - 3pm
In this half day workshop we will explore the traditional technique of natural dyeing. Join artist Gal Leshem to learn about the qualities of plants as natural dyes and generate a range of beautiful fabrics. Learn the process of dyeing, from the preparation of the fabric to the achievement of your desired shade. Experiment with different methods to create colours and patterns to make your own designs.
The workshop will begin with learning the basics of dyeing using madder, logwood and weld. After which we’ll learn about ways of creating patterns using resist and Shibori methods. Following the break we will experiment with colour modifiers and then apply our new skills and knowledge to create our own designs.
