Botanical Silk Dyeing Workshop
Learn how to create beautiful, colourful designs on British Peace Silk with dried or fresh botanicals as natural dyes, using a binding and steaming process. With this environmentally friendly process, you can achieve a variety of results using colours derived from just botanical elements. You will take away at least one finished silk scarf, a perfect and unique Christmas present for a friend or as an addition to your own wardrobe.
Suitable for complete beginners, the workshop will be held within the Aromadome, at Keyneston Mill and will be taught by Tanya Glynn a Dorset based Fashion and Textiles designer. She will be assisted by Lesley Davies a locally based corset designer. You will have plenty of time to explore the creative process. It is a very expressive way of working, so you can have fun with it!
Please note: there will be an additional fee of £25 on the day, to cover materials including British Peace silk fabric. A selection of Bundle dying kits to take home will be available to purchase on the day.
