In this online workshop, Hannah Elisabeth Jones (MA, RCA) invites participants to learn how to naturally dye materials at home. The workshop participants will explore the history of natural dyes as well as the dyestuffs that people can use today, such as food waste and foraged plants. The participants will spend the rest of the day learning different dyeing techniques, including bundle dyeing, hapazome and shibori.
