Natural Textile Dyeing Workshop With Flowers
In this meditative workshop fragile dried petals and vibrant fresh blossoms will be used to colour ethereal silk and rustic linen fabrics, capturing the moment by steaming the flowers to create uniquely colourful cloths.

You will taste floral herbal teas while discovering the rich and colourful world of dye plants, natural colorants and the ancient art of natural dyeing.

You will get familiar with fabric selection and the preparation steps for dyeing; foraging, growing and collecting plants as well as numerous dyeing techniques and the methods of colour extraction for fabric staining and dyeing.

Participants will dye one silk chiffon headscarf and two linen napkins. All the tools and materials will be provided but you can also bring some of your own precious flowers or you could even dry this year's Valentine's bouquet and we can compose it into your fabrics too.

The workshop is lead by Sára Hajgató, designer of the natural dye brand BOTANIKA.

During the workshop you'll learn all the skills to enable you to dye on your own later at home, whether you want to transform a favourite item of clothing, dye a skin-friendly baby garment or update your seasonal home linens.
