Plant dyeing party!

This plant dyeing party will be a great introduction to experience the wonder of plant dyes. We’ll be making dye vats from roots to create an array of colours from yellow to pink to indigo blue.

Treat yourself to an afternoon with like-minded people and dye silk scarves with natural plant dyes.  These scarves can be used to accent your outfit, to decorate a room or as play silks for your child to play with. 
These dyes are safe and non-toxic producing beautiful colours that you will love. You can also use one of the scarves for the nuno felting workshop on June 12th.

With Petra Borkowski

Nuno Felting is a technique developed by Polly Stirling from Australia. “Nuno” is the Japanese word for “cloth” and nuno felting  is the process of binding loose wool fibres onto a silk chiffon scarf (size 14” x 72”). The result is a stunning scarf that you can wear or give to someone special.  You will be so proud of your results and leave feeling very creative. There is no experience needed only a smile.

Time: 09:30-12:30
Where: Little Italy (address will be given upon registration)
