NATURAL FABRIC DYE WORKSHOP WITH TANNAZ BARKHORDARI

This one day workshop introduces students to the world of beautiful, accessible, and sustainable plant dyes. The students will learn how to prepare and scour materials for natural fabric dyeing (scour: the process of fabric washing preparation).

Students will also learn how to create dye pots and how to use mordants to fix colours to achieve a range of tones.

Each student will dye one silk tote bag and one wool scarf. All material for this workshop will be provided. Students will work in Whitecliffe specifically equipped and designed fabric dye room in the fashion studio.

Please note that there will be some down time during the dyeing process and a collection of books from the Whitecliffe library will be available to consult and engage in discussion with the tutor. The tutor will also provide a handout and information on where to source material (fabric and natural dye).
