Ancient Craft: Natural Fabric Dyeing and Shibori Relief Patterns

Suitable for 11+

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the fascinating alchemy of natural fabric dyeing using three of the most ancient dye plants, woad (indigo); madder and weld. Justine Aldersey-Williams will introduce you to simple Shibori (tie-dye) resist techniques and mineral modifiers to create multiple shade variations and patterns, allowing you to personalise a pre-scoured and mordanted silk or wool gauze scarf to take away.

With Justine Aldersey-Williams of the Wild Dyery
