photos above are of one of my beloved natural dye sample books (with plenty of room for more samples).
As part of the natural dye workshop at Unwind we will be dyeing at least 5 silk scarves per student as well as producing a lot of samples which students can make beautiful sample books with. Creating and having sample books is one of those things that makes me happy. They are beautiful, original objects to have and flip through at your leisure (love doing this AMAP), and with the right info inside (with which you think you might be able to duplicate the results) they are invaluable tools. Check out these beautiful natural dye sample books for some inspiration.
If you're interested in taking this natural dye and print workshop call unwind to register. (604) 886 1418
This is going to be a really fun workshop. Students will learn how to make dye stock solutions for immersion dyeing, using shibori resist methods to create pattern and design. We will also learn how to print on fabric using found natural materials. Multiple mordanting techniques will be covered, as well as discharging and rusting techniques to achieve a plethora of results!
