Natural Dyes Day Course

03 October 2020

Discover the beauty of natural dyes and create a striking dyed silk scarf. This workshop will introduce you to the basic techniques of creating colour and dyeing using natural plant materials.

You will be able to experiment with using dyes made from plant materials and use them on pieces of fabric to create some colour samples.  During the day, learn about mordants and how to create pattern using resist techniques, including ‘Shibori’ - . the ancient Japanese art of folding cloth to form a resist.

You will then move on to create a beautiful dyed silk scarf, using the bundle steaming method.

The tutor will supply all the materials necessary for the course, but participants are welcome to bring along their own samples of materials and natural ingredients.

Course Tutor: Penny Dixon

Penny is a qualified teacher with a degree in Fashion and Textiles, and a Masters in Art Health and Wellbeing. She is a member of the International Feltmakers’ Association and currently teaches at Mac Birmingham as well as other community venues. Penny also exhibits locally including the recent ‘Crafted for You' exhibition at Worcester City Art Gallery.  She is fascinated by the ancient craft of feltmaking and loves the way the fibres interconnect, likening it to the way groups of people work.  She loves how versatile the craft is and how textured, colourful pieces can be produced that are either delicate or hardwearing depending on the mood of the maker.
