Natural Dyeing – Castlemaine

DyePaletteIlka1Additional Castlemaine Workshop by popular demand!

For thousands of years plants have been used to dye fibre and fabric and a beautiful natural palette is still available today without the need for harmful chemicals. Local weeds or kitchen off-cuts can offer you harmonious hues in a range of values and intensity. This hands-on workshop introduces a selection of local colour possibilities, as well as discussing fibre types, mordanting options and dye safety. A shibori technique will also be used to produce patterned cloth. Come and discover some of nature’s hidden sources of colour!
