Description


Get colourful and experiment with multi-coloured dyeing techniques and walk away with a scarf plus a collection of smaller experiments of your own creation.

Through guided demonstrations, discover different techniques for multi-coloured fabric dyeing without using excessive amounts of water or dye. Over three hours we will layer, crumple, spiral, fold, bind and clamp fabric pieces to create various, and always colourful, uniquely patterned dyed creations.


Regular classes can have up to 4 students; however this teacher can take up to 8 students for special events.

Booking larger group events is easy. Just Request it.

build Equipment Needed

All dyestuffs required for the day will be provided along with a scarf of your choice and a selection of fabric pieces for experimentation. Participants are also encouraged to bring along their own fabric (white or very pale colour and natural fibre). It is also recommended to bring along some plastic bags to transport wet, dyed fabric home in. Disposable gloves will be provided, aprons are not, so bring one along if you can. Clothes you don't mind getting dyed and closed in, non-slip shoes are recommended.
