Join local textile artist, Barbara Wheeler, for an introduction to botanical printing and dyeing.

Learn how to

  • identify natural fibres and select plants that will give colour to cloth

  • print textiles using a natural dyebath

  • use shibori folding to create stunning resist patterns

Participants will receive

  • one piece of Australian Wool fabric 30 x 20 cm

  • notes on botanical dyes

It’s a messy workshop so wear old clothes or an apron, covered shoes. There will be notes provided, but a notebook and pen arealways handy. Bring a container to take your wet fabric sample home.
