Day Two of a three session course that will teach you how to make your own sustainable colour wheel using just plant based dyes. There will be an emphasis on plant dyes that can be grown in the UK and are colour fast. This course is for people who want to delve a little deeper into the sustainable world of natural dyes whilst learning how to dye with traditional methods.

This second session will look at the colour red. Which plants, food and garden waste will give you a range of reds and how to avoid the you tube video pitfalls. We will also explore changing colours with pH, modifiers and over dyeing as well as some simple resist techniques to create pattern. 

Although all fabrics used in the class will be prepared ready for dyeing you will still have a chance to learn about the scouring and mordanting processes. 

The third session will be the colour Blue where we will look at the difference between woad and indigo. 

In the this course you will learn:

  • Preparing fabric for dyeing
  • Preparing dried and fresh plants for dye baths 
  • Saving and using plant & food waste for sustainable dyeing
  • Making modifiers and natural mordants
  • Pattern making with modifiers and mordants
  • Resist dyeing techniques

You will leave with comprehensive knowledge based around natural dyes, and a self made workbook to refer back to.
