Join Tara Macdonald for this fabulous workshop in the art of botanical dyeing. There are so many plants and flowers that yield incredible colour and have been used for centuries to dye our textiles. Bundle dyeing is the gentle steaming of plant colour directly onto cloth; the perfect way to introduce yourself to this fascinating craft. During this workshop you will create either your own beautiful botanically dyed organic cotton pants, bamboo socks, tote bag or silk or organic cotton scarf using various petals, leaves and extracts and gathered flowers. The perfect way to capture some of the beauty of summer onto something you can wear again and again.
Tara Macdonald began her career as a horticulturalist and garden designer. Her fascination with craft and plants has led her to develop her practice in botanical dyeing. Working from her dye studio in Rye, she loves to use gathered plants and those she grows in her own garden in her work.
