Eco Dyeing Crafternoon

March 9 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm

My Crafternoons Eco Dyeing Crafternoon

🌿 This month we’re collaborating with the lovely Tine Brok of EUCY REDD raw ecodyes for a hands-on Crafternoon on botanical eco dyeing!

We’ll be in the mud brick HIRL Art Rooms, surrounded by 11 acres of native parklands, with a bandicoot enclosure, native edible plant garden, veggie patches, natural wetlands and lots of lovely flowers and foliage.

🌼 Tine will guide an intimate group of us on how to dye and add patterns to fabric with botanical elements like petals, leaves and bark, how to use mordants, bind your scarves and make the magic happen!

We’ll each take home a finished good-quality scarf, and the workshop also includes an information booklet to take home, a walking tour to learn how to identify dye plants and discuss responsible foraging, take-home seeds to start planting your own dye-producing garden, and refreshments (drinks and sweet treats!)
Not to mention the great company, good vibes, and opportunity to learn from a passionate eco dyeing guru 🙂

Tine will also have packs available for purchase on the day if you’re keen to continue your dyeing adventures at home.

🌸 Tickets are $80 per person including:
– 70 × 180 cm wool scarf which prints beautifully (or you can select a vegan hemp/cotton version on the day if wool isn’t your thing)
– All tools, materials and tuition to learn about botanical eco-dyeing
– Walking tour while our dye pots get to work!
– Printed information booklet
– Seeds to take home if you want to plant your own dye-producing garden.

Bookings are made online via Trybooking:
This craft is also suitable for kids over 5.
