Eco-Dyeing on Fabric and Paper

Saturday, November 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

$160.00

 

Eco-Dyeing on Fabric

Eco-dyeing (also known as eco-printing) is a form of botanical printing where the natural colours from plant materials are transferred onto materials such as paper and fabric via heat and pressure.  The results are often spectacular, with clear leaf prints in rich browns, reds and olive colours.

Join our guest tutor, Natalie Billing, to play with eco-dyeing on both fabric and paper.  Using windfall leaves and vegetable peels, you’ll eco-dye a scarf (wool or silk) and make a concertina paper book.  You’ll learn all about the eco-dyeing process through Natalie’s extensive experience, so you can continue your eco-dyeing experiments at home.

All materials are provided and the workshop fee includes one scarf and paper for a book.  A comprehensive handout is also provided.

You need to bring to the workshop:

  • Apron/Old clothes and nametag
  • A bucket to carry home your damp creations in
  • Your lunch and drinks. Tea and coffee are provided.

 

About the Tutor:  Natalie Billing is a Queensland artist, raised in Blackall and now based in Brisbane.  Her art practice focuses on memory.  Natalie has been exhibiting nationally since 1994 including sculpture and installation works.  In recent years Natalie has been working with eco dyeing techniques, selling and exhibiting her work throughout Australia and overseas.
