Wild Dye Days Winter 2021 .The course is an introduction to natural dyeing. It explores the natural dye materials readily available to us in our kitchens, gardens and countryside.
It covers how to set up a natural dye kitchen, what fabrics to use and how to prepare them. Each week focuses on a different dye material and dye technique.
Special emphasis is on exploring the range and quality of natural dye colours and the plants and trees that they come from. The plants and trees can be used in the printing process and as inspiration for drawings, paintings, patterns and designs.
Towards the end of the course we make a book of natural dye samples and a textile hanging of our work- winter colour, a record of time and place.
During the Winter the dye sessions take place in the large kitchens at the Daylight Studios but time may still be spent in the garden gathering dye materials.
The aim of the course is to explore this beautifully immersive, in sync with nature, vibration raising activity.
