You will be guided through the enchanting process of enveloping petals and plant matter in organic British grown silk cloth, bound and steamed to transfer the botanical inks into silk.
The morning will start with an introduction to some basic natural dye and bundle dyeing theory. Followed by a walk around the grounds to identify and harvest suitable plant materials for using in the practical session.
You will leave with the skills to practice this technique again using simple equipment which may be found in the home. And with your own natural dye eco-printed silk to make into a scarf or other project.
