NATURAL DYE WEEKEND IMMERSION

In the words of Errol van de Werdt, Netherlands Textile Museum director, "Like foragers look for food, ecologically-conscious designers hunt and gather organic ingredients creating a colourful language tinted for today's greener times. Environmentalism is interwoven with sustenance.” Jo Fowles sincerely looks forward to taking you down the very long and deeply beautiful rabbit hole that is natural dyeing with local and Indian natural dyes to create a beautiful technical file full of samples for both yarn and fabric. 

THE CLASS

This weekend class includes mordants and modifiers to create an extensive range of colours. Jo’s full weekend class will include learning about protein and cellulose fibres and their unique properties. Full swatch packs will be provided for all sampling and recording and you will have 10 hours of pure dyeing immersion. You will create an extensive dye journal of beautiful natural colour and gain a solid understanding of natural dyes. You will be working with premium ethical dyes from India and you will come away with knowledge of how to mordant fabric, use an extract to dye and we will demonstrate how to use modifier baths to alter the colour of samples.
WHAT YOU WILL GET:
  • Sample fabrics and yarns
  • Folder for samples 
  • Technical file data sheets
  • Comprehensive notes
  • All dyes   

 YOU WILL LEAVE WITH:

  • A solid foundation in natural dye, ideas on how to utilise food waste, an understanding of mordants and how to dye your own yarns, fabrics and clothes
  • A journal full of dye samples
  • A new appreciation of food and colours
