Northey Street City Farm says
Join Linda Parmenter to learn the basics of natural dyeing with plants to create beautiful colours and patterns on fabric. This workshop will cover some of the common techniques for unlocking the myriad of hues that are contained within natural dyes and will introduce participants to some of the familiar garden plants and Australian natives that can be used and to the use of mordants to fix the dye to silk, wool or cotton fibres. Using basic shibori (resist) techniques and ‘eco-printing’ participants will experiment on sample silk or wool panels before creating a beautiful silk scarf to take home. Fabric and plant materials will be supplied.
