WORKSHOP Bundle dyeing
Did you know that you can keep beautiful plant colors in cloth? Just by making a simple bundle, you can magically stop the time for the blooms, roots, and leaves.
You will learn which local plants can be used to get pigments form and how to achieve different visual effects with your bundle. If you are interested in how non-toxic, natural dyes can be applied to the fabric, join us in our new studio Exerzierstraße 8.
You will be introduced to the beautiful alchemy of botanical bundling and will leave with your own botanically dyed silk scarf.
This workshop will cover:
- different types of plant pigments and how to use them
- preparing different fabrics for the dyeing process
- how to make plant colors light- and wash fast
- using different bundling techniques to achieve different results
It's a great opportunity to be introduced to the beautiful alchemy of plant dyeing. If you're interested in acquiring more in-depth knowledge, we recommend the "Botanical Dyeing" workshop.
This workshop will be held in English but questions in German can be answered too. If you're a beginner or have only a basic knowledge of the subject, this introductory workshop is for you.
All materials will be provided, including fabric, mordants, and dye plants.
