NATURAL DYE AND STITCH
(Improv patchwork and freeform stitching)
Play with naturally dyed fabrics and enjoy a peaceful morning of artful composition and stitching.
We will work with colour, texture and stitches to personalise and accentuate your own creative project such as a book cover or a cushion cover (total fabric approx. 50 x 50cm).
You may instead choose to make smaller compositions to be used later eg small patches for visible mending, or to cover a tote bag.
The applications are endless. There will be plenty of inspiration to draw from and we will encourage each other.
We will also dye some specially curated silk fabric in a fresh dyebath and/or bundle dye it with some Australian native plants. This can then be added into your project or another project.
This workshop is about fun and creativity. You can choose how elaborate you would like to make your artwork, or if you prefer the minimalist look, use simple stitches to accentuate fabric colours and textures.
Workshop includes irresistible treats and tea and all curated dyed and undyed fabrics.
