London: Festive Floral Dyeing Workshop @ The Barbican (Afternoon)

  • Barbican Centre Silk Street London, England United Kingdom (map)

There are two separate 2 hour classes running on this day: Choose from 10.30am-12.30pm or 1.30pm-3.30pm.

Use fresh flowers to naturally dye silk in this eco–conscious workshop with artisan dye studio, Botanical Inks.

Learn the contemporary 'bundle dye' process, for the direct application of plant dye colour from flowers and plant materials into cloth with a simple steaming technique.

Create a unique length of Botanical Inks printed cloth, using a special organic British-grown 'peace silk' to make into a scarf, pillowcase, ribbons or another creative project of your own. Getting in the festive spirit, we'll be using special madder red and chlorophyll green dyes, along with a selection of local seasonal plants.

You will leave with the knowledge and skills required to make your own bundle–dyed items again, using simple equipment which may be found in your kitchen, and with your own unique, natural dye printed length of silk.
