This SSSW members’ workshop will be held on Tuesday 25 September 2018. It introduces you to dyeing with vegetable matter without the use of added chemical mordants.

Jennifer W and Sue D will organise three dyepots – Murraya (green), eucalypt bark (brown), and water (neutral). Each participant will be given swatches of wool, silk and cotton but can also bring their own wool/silk fibre or yarn. We can then experiment with leaf printing by creating bundles to be cooked in the pots.

We will need to start early so that we have sufficient cooking time so be at the hall at 10am.

Bring another project to work on during the middle of the day. We will retrieve bundles around 1:30pm.

Extra yarn/fibre if you wish (must be wool or silk)
Note paper and pen
Rubbergloves and apron (optional)
Waterproof bag to take wet material home.
