Learn to create colourful dyes4,5 hours Max 6 people65 euros per person
Textile designer Christiana Vardakou shares her knowledge of colours and natural dyeing techniques in a collective workshop. During the four-hour course, participants learn how to create different colours based on four natural elements: marigold flower, onion skin, oak bark and madder roots. The different shades are then tested on natural fabrics and yarns such as linen, silk, wool, or cotton. Each student leaves the class with their botanically dyed swatch book, collecting all the colourful experiments. Moreover, a theoretical part concludes the course; Christiana talks about different plants and the whole process of natural dyeing.
