Suitable for beginners and those with experience.

This workshop will cover

Scouring demonstration
Tannin baths
Mordants - Alum Acetate and Alum
Chalk bath

Questions & answers always welcome - no silly questions here.
As scouring takes valuable time we will demonstrate this process briefly so you know how to do it at home.

We will be working with cellulose fibre but invite you to bring your own protein fibre as described in the optional section below.

First we will discuss, prepare and use tannin baths followed by alum bath for protein and alum acetate bath for cellulose.

We will have 3 vats working and shall be overdyeing and using a post iron vat for colour modification.

This workshop will be comprehensive and very productive. We want to empower you with the knowledge and confidence to pursue your own natural dye practice.

1mt of pre scoured Khadi cotton
3 x dye vats to be used freely
All tannins, mordants and assists
