Workshop

Experimenting with Natural Dyes

Anne Harris

9.30 am

During this workshop, attendees will go on a field walk around the Yandina Community Gardens and surrounds and learn how to identify possible dye plants.  This will be followed by a dyeing demonstration using plants from the surrounding gardens and a discussion about the different ways that dyes can be extracted, materials and basic equipment needed and how you can use the most sustainable methods.

 

All workshops and DVD screenings commence at 9.30 am (unless otherwise indicated) and go for approx 1 1/2 to 2 hours. These events and workshops are open to everyone in the community, not just members and volunteers at the Gardens and there is no need to book a place.
