We had such an amazing day at the Pines Calyx on 16th March 2019 with our natural dye and print workshop. We started the session by making 4 dye baths including Lavender, Turmeric, Red cabbage and Avocado. We used vintage linen swatches which had been pre mordanted using Alum. Participants had the opportunity to walk in the gardens taking inspiration from the winter botanics and the White Cliffs of Dover.
They used the inspiration to create a series of prints using dye pastes created with madder, cutch, red cabbage, weld and Chlorophyllin . It was such an inspirational day for everyone involved.
