You are invited to a workshop on natural plant dyes by India Betar, a textile artist based in Sydney (see http://indiabetar.com for examples of her works). The workshop will cover a short introduction to natural plant dyeing, with an overview of various techniques and the basic principles and tools.
India will first demonstrate eco print dying, making sample size eco prints on silk and other materials. Then she will help to set up a solar dye jar to dye silk scarf for everyone to take home.
It should be a very busy and productive 2hrs so please come prepared to get started on time to make the most of it.
Examples: Tibouchina, Azaleas, Salvia bract and flower, Roses, Violas and Daisies and many more. Also foliage Prunus ‘Nigra’, Coleus, purple trad. Even coloured berries just make sure they have lots of colour when squashed between the fingers eg Dianella.
Please don’t be tempted to buy flowers. No Oleander or camellia. I will have some back up but not much
