NATURAL DYE WORKSHOPS

With natural dyeing of textiles we work in harmony with Nature. Without exploiting her or to overcome her limitations, but by following her natural cycles and allowing her full expression as we slowly extract the beautiful colours from the natural world around us.

By learning about different techniques and the purpose of natural dyeing  you not only open doors to a new journey of discovering the beautfiul world of natural colours, but also explore the creativity within yourself. You'll learn to create as nature does and I'll teach you everything nature has taught me, so that you can bring the colors into your own life with the creations you make with your own hands.
