WORKSHOPS

EXPERIMENTAL DYE ART USING NATURAL MATERIALS @ THE SAATCHI GALLERY, LONDON

  • The Saatchi Gallery Duke of York's HQ, King's Road London, SW3 4RY

lnspired by Saatchi Gallery artist Sigrid Holmwood, this workshop provides an opportunity to experiment with a range of exciting natural dyes and pigments- from flowers, berries, roots, leaves, insects and minerals. Learn how to use Japanese Shibori tie-dyeing to create resist patterns using simple folding and binding techniques, inject botanical dyes into folds of cloth, scatter fresh and dried flower petals into bundles for steaming to release their colour and create direct impressions on cloth. Learn about the joy of using natural materials to create exciting prints and colour on fabrics. 

Notes: All materials are provided and included in the cost, including a piece of organic British silk which has been pre-treated with natural mineral salt for aiding colour-fastness, to make into a napkin or other small item.
