Tutor Colleen Plank

Low impact dyeing gives the opportunity to create unexpected colours and imprinted designs using sustainable practices.

During this hands-on workshop, you will use local plants and found materials to create subtle colours on cellulose (cotton & linen) and protein (wool & silk) fibres and fabrics. The techniques you learn are suitable to be applied to clothing, accessories, furnishings, or for incorporating into patchwork, quilting and felt making.  The eco-dyed yarns yield beautiful soft and harmonious colours, these can be used for knitting, crocheting and embellishments.

Discover the magic of leaf prints using the ‘bundle’ technique on natural fabrics.
