Natural dyeing and printing
Wed, July 12, 2017, 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM BST
Try your hand at natural dyeing and printing using local seasonal plants and natural collected materials.
What will you learn?
Cardiff textile artist Cat Lewis will take your through a selection of natural dyes and print pastes, all made from plants, foods and collected iron scraps. You will be able to sample the Japanese dyeing technique of Itjami Shibori resist dyeing and simple block printing using rust, to create patterns onto recycled natural fabrics.Natural dyes are very safe and kind to skin but please wear clothes that you don't mind getting a splash of colour on.
We strive to keep our ticket prices as low as possible so that our workshops can be accessible to all. We are able to offer a limited amount of free tickets to those on low incomes so please get in touch if you wish to attend a workshop but feel that the cost is prohibitive.
