Photos from eco dyeing and nuno felting at the Sydney Botanic Gardens

plant dyed silks
Here are some photos from the two day nuno felt eco dye course I ran at the Sydney Botanic Gardens recently. This is the third year I have had the pleasure to give a dye workshop at the gardens and I'm always sincerely grateful for the honour, as I do consider it such an incredible landmark in Australia, a place of breathtaking beauty. 

In the workshop this year I combined eco plant dyeing with nuno felt making, so that participants learnt some techniques in both creative fields. In two days they learnt emersion dyes from garden plants, eco printing, created a nuno felt shawl with eco dyeing and a cushion cover, also plant dyed. They now have enough creative knowledge to continue to explore for the rest of their days!

Nuno felt shawls made with pre plant dyed silks and post dyed with plants. Try saying that quickly...
