Natural Dye Workshop
hero
 
Part art, part science, part experimentation, all fun! A practical hands on workshop where you will learn sustainable techniques for natural dye extraction using plants. Covers preparation, process and use of natural dyeing techniques and how to create different dyeing effects. This workshop will primarily focus on natural dyes for fabrics, giving you the means to recreate and renew clothing and textiles in a sustainable and ecologically mindful way.

Yvonne Dalton is a practicing textile artist based in Keyneton who has exhibited in Australia, and also featured in international textile publications. Whilst experienced with a wide variety of dyeing techniques, Yvonne prefers to focus on processes that avoid chemical treatment of the textiles, and has experimented widely with native dye plants. Her techniques result in beautiful colours and textures that reflect the landscape in its moods and seasons.  Her passionate commitment to the natural environment and a sustainable future is reflected in her work.
