I'm inviting you to a comprehensive and thorough course where I will teach all you want to know about natural dyes and eco printing on natural fabrics.
The course is built from three single-day sessions in three subsequent weeks. Each session will be on a specific subject with different materials. Hours are 9.30-16.30 and include coffee, tea, lunch.
Day One: Natural Dyes, a World of Color
A world of color from madder, logwood and onion in combination with mordants. We will work on different fabrics to make a color chart to take home.
Day Two: Eco Printing, Discover the secrets from within.
Hidden pigments in leaves, twigs and barks create gorgeous colors and patterns. You will learn how to combine these pigments and structures with different mordants to create stunning effects on silk. You will make a lot of different try outs to get used to the right techniques for the best results.
Day Three: Your Signature Scarf: The making of a final project using special techniques and materials.
You will combine the materials we have learned, while incorporating special new techniques and elements. The final result will be a large silk scarf to treasure.
The course takes place in my studio in Shoham, an intimate space surrounded by nature.
Each participant will produce:
* A catalogue of swatches using 8 to 10 different natural fibres and fabrics.
* Recipes of the colors produced during the workshop.
* a large silk scarf as a final project
Spaces are (very) limited, your place is only guaranteed after full registration. It is possible to make a payment in installments.
