Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee as you learn about the bundle dyeing techniques you’ll be using today, using plant materials and kitchen left overs.
Head out into the Edible Garden to pick flowers and leaves to bring back and add to the dye.
Practice the bundle dye technique with sample pieces. You'll use these test pieces to inform your final piece, looking at colour analysis and mordant options for different outcomes.
Use your experience through the day to create your bundle dyed length of silk.
While your silk is steaming, have a go at block printing cards using natural inks from botanical and plant extracts.
An opportunity to discuss your bundle dyed piece, the technique and how you can take the practice home.
