Botanical Printing on Peace Silk
Learn how to use flowers and other natural dye stuff to hand-dye silk textiles, creating intriguing patterns and vibrant colour. We will use a technique called bundle-dyeing, a relaxing process involving extracting pigment from flowers onto cloth.
A length of pre-mordanted, UK grown organic pure silk will be included in the price. You can then make it into a scarf or use for any personal project you like.
Kylie is gifted with floral waste from florists, so there will be a variety of fresh and dried floral waste that we will use to create our eco-prints. Not only will you leave with the knowledge and skills to continue with future projects of your own. You will hopefully experience a deeper connection with nature and the therapeutic qualities it entails.
