Botanical Dye Workshop 21.10.18
Updated: Oct 15, 2018
Join us for our 2nd Forest Walk & Botanical Dye workshop with multidisciplinary fibre artist, Elena Tochev.
The entire workshop will be held in the beauty of the forest, supporting a true expression of time and place.
Title: Botanical Dye Workshop
Date: Sunday, 21/10/2018
Time: 10am - 2pm
Location: Lange Erlen Woods (Woodentry just before the German border)
Language: English (with German help available)
Fee: 180.- includes your choice of silk scarf or cotton shirt
Together, we’ll slowly walk the trails of the forest and gather plant materials to create a botanically dyed scarf or shirt of your choice. Back at the wooden fire pit we’ll learn how to treat fibres and extract colour from the plant materials using bundle dyeing techniques. A simmering cauldron will await the immersion of our collective bundles. As the bundles simmer over the open fire, we’ll enjoy a lunch and observe the slow alchemy of colour.
Please dress for the weather and bring your own bag to collect plant material during the forest walk.
Spaces are limited.
