Join us for an immersive fabric dyeing class in Melbourne, in collaboration with REMUSE, a cutting-edge Naarm based clothing label, led by the talented designer and stylist Tamara Leacock.

Discover the art of plant-based dyeing and learn different techniques using natural fibres and plant-based materials.

You will have the unique opportunity to upcycle and dye your own natural fibre item, either brought from home or by choosing from a selection of undyed REMUSE samples available for purchase during the workshop.

During this experience, you'll explore a variety of dyeing techniques, including a brief instruction on creating a chemical indigo dye vat, dyeing with turmeric, dyeing with onion skins, dyeing with chocolate and a brief introduction to bundle dyeing with leaves and flowers.

By the end of the class, you can take home your new upcycled item, ready to show off your wearable art!
