Introduction to Natural Dyes Workshop Sunday, April 24 (2023)

Learn to dye respecting nature and its processes: here is the objective of this
workshop.


For this we combine the ancient forms of staining with the current knowledge that
allow them to be improved, thus avoiding the use of toxins and making better use of resources.
Each participant will take a silk scarf and a small skein of wool dyed in the
chosen tone.

• Commonly used dyeing plants, and extraction of their dyes.
