Workshop: Introduction to Natural Dyeing

by Christiana Vardakou

Natural dye by definition are dyes or colorants derived from plants, invertebrates or minerals.

Most natural dyes are extracted from plants using roots, leaves, bark, berries and wood.

So many natural materials can produce amazing colours.

Flowers and plants from your garden, vegetables and kitchen waste as well as plants, roots,
lichens or tree barks found in a park, a forest or a field close to your home.

All these can produce the most beautiful colour palette.
Natural dyeing is a constant exploration and pleasant surprise.

In the workshop we will use plants, flowers & herbs from our F Zeen Gardens
and with these we will make different colours.

We will also talk about: other plants you can use to dye with, the natural dyeing process,
the fabric/fiber choices, how mordants work.
