Learn the basics of dyeing fabric and yarn using plants, flowers, leaves, compost and scraps with Ellie Beck. Ellie is a textile artist and creative maker, working primarily with natural fibres and an instinctual process, finding inspiration in nature.
Using various techniques, you’ll learn different ways of creating colour and working with cloth and yarn. You will find out more about mordants, caring for your fabrics and yarns, sustainability in textiles and more.
There will be the opportunity to create beautiful eco-print pieces on both cloth and paper, to discover this beautiful process.
Note: A basic sample materials kit is provided as part of the class cost, but if you want a full kit with lots of take home materials you can purchase this as an optional extra. The full fabric kit includes: a silk scarf, silk, cotton and linen fabrics, and yarn.
You will also be emailed an extra list of things to bring once you book, however this class is designed to work as sustainable manner as possible and so we encourage you to use what you have rather than buying a lot of expensive new materials.
