Sydney botanical gardens eco dye course

Colour your textiles with plants. Friday 6th March.

In this 1 day course you will create submersion dyes with numerous plants and experiment with some simple shibori techniques to pattern cloth.
We will also explore the magic of eco prints and play with scrap metal to see some of the unique patterns and effects that can be achieved through a combination of these techniques.

This course is suitable for beginners and dabblers of dyeing who may like a little more guidance with these techniques. You will leave with new creative ideas of how to make your fabrics unique and beautiful, using natural dyeing techniques. Great for any textile enthusiast.

A sample pack of fabrics will be included in the cost of the course, with silk and wool fabrics to experiment with, string for tying bundles, some silk thread for sewing, a scarf for printing and a length of fabric. More scarves and fabric will be available to buy on the day. You are also welcome to bring in some natural fabrics of your own that you may like to experiment with.

A couple of places are still available in this course so click here to find out more and book, if you feel like joining in the fun!


  1. Too bad that you are based in Sydney, and I am in Melbourne....the workshop sounds wonderful!
