Click to enlarge
When:
Sun 14 Oct 2018
Time:
10am - 4pm
Details:
An elementary starting level course on eco-colour extracted from natural sources, onto fabric & paper through steam or immersion using simple eco-colour “bundle & wrap” techniques.

This one-day workshop with artist Amanda Farquharson looks at the wonderful colours sourced from nature. Working with silk you will use mordants to bind colour & modifiers to alter colours, while noting their significance & impact on dyeing silk, wool & paper as you create unique scarves/hankies and a booklet.

If you have access to eucalyptus, rose petals, marigold, interesting leaf shapes or other colour sources you’d like to test, bring a handful or two. Eucalyptus Cinerea (Silver dollar) is an especially vibrant colour source.

You can also bring a small item of scoured, (freshly washed in mild soap) un-coloured wool or silk to test in the dye baths.

Please wear sturdy, covered shoes. Visit the website to see what you need to bring from home.

Small class of 8 participants maximum.

Suitable for ages 16years – Adult with Beginner to Intermediate skill levels.

Cost $120 + $35 for specialist materials including 1 metre of silk.
