11 Jan Introduction to Natural Bundle Dye
A three hour introduction to the simple, beautiful and water conserving method of natural bundle dyeing fabric. This method, also known as Eco Printing, allows endless exploration since food and floral waste can be used for stunning results. Wonderfully sustainable since it makes such sparing use of raw dye material and precious water.
As we steam our bundles we will discuss the individual plant dyes, and the environmental impact of textiles and clothing and look at the ways in which we buy, care for and dispose of clothing.
The bundle dye results are always unique, unexpected and inspire wonder. Essentially infusing the plant matter into the fabric, each bundle is a poem composed of Gaia’s markings and materials. A most lovely way to commemorate a special bouquet and can easily be done at home on the stove.
