Outdoor Botanical Dye Workshop - 13.10.2019
Updated: Sep 27, 2019
Together we roam through the forests of the Lange Erlen, collect what the forest yields, withered flowers, leaves and shriveled berries to create a botanically colored silk carré.
Back at the fire pit, a boiling pot of water and additional plant material from the garden awaits our soon to be prepared bundles. Once the artworks are created and tied with the 'bundle dye' technique, we enjoy a lunch snack and watch nature do the work for us.
After this workshop you will be able to continue to dye and experiment in your own garden; What materials are best suited, how do we extract colors from the collected plants and how do we treat fibers in a natural way - free of chemical helpers.
