Bundle Dyeing with Flowers + Plants @ Plymouth College of Art (Full Day)

  • Plymouth College of Art Tavistock Place Plymouth, England, PL4 United Kingdom (map)

A contemporary technique for creating mesmerising patterns and colour on cloth, without the need for colour extraction or the dye pot.

Learn how to use this wonderful " Bundle Dyeing" bind and steam technique, to create unique designs, using zero toxic, synthetic chemicals or heavy metals, as part of a sustainable creative practice. Choose from a variety of dried and fresh flowers and plants to achieve a range of colours, explore intuitive herbalism, flower symbolism and natural dyeing. Leave with the skills to make your own bundle dyed items and with a beautifully hand dyed length of organic British silk, with which you may make a scarf, cushion cover or other creative project.

A length of organic British silk will be provided and included in class for you to use, and there will also be more available to buy at an additional cost, at £28 per metre, also available by the 1/2 metre.
