Dyeing with plants: A workshop on natural dyeing techniques 25/04/2015
This spring, dye expert Susie Wareham will take you through the steps to create your own beautifully dyed textiles, using only locally sourced natural materials.
Join us for a hands-on workshop including a walk round our local green spaces – including our neighbouring Archbishop's Park – to forage for the best of Lambeth's plants and flowers. You will then be able to use what you have found to steam dye an item of your choice, which will be supplied for you, ready and prepared to dye.
Have a look at the plan for the day:
10.00 Welcome at Garden Museum with tea & coffee and introduction to natural dyeing techniques
10.40 Head outside to explore and forage for dye materials
11.45 - 12.00 Back to Museum to prepare your materials and out to our steam-dye station in the greenhouse to dye your item
13.30 Collect your fabrics and share what you have made with the group over a cup of tea
10:00 - 15:00
(including all materials, lunch and refreshments)
