Join flora & farbe for classes on natural dyeing, in Berlin, in Dresden and elsewhere on request!
Workshops are held in German, and/or English depending on participants. If you're unsure about joining, just get in touch beforehand!
Plant dyeing: 1-day workshop
Dyeing with plants in a relaxed atmosphere: with a focus on local plants and mindful mordanting, you will learn how to create beautiful plant dyes! With plenty of time for your questions and to get hands on with the dye pots.
Compact indigo introduction workshop. You will get to know two different vat recipes with which you can safely dye blue at home, prepare a mini vat to take home and get to dye something small in class.
Design fabric with a brush, stamp or stencil: Learn how to make your own print pastes from plant-based paint. Der Workshop besteht aus zwei Teilen – an Tag 1 stellst du Pasten her und gestaltest ein Tuch. An Tag 2 geht es dann noch ums Fixieren und die Nachbehandlung, für haltbare Farben und weiche Stoffe ohne ‚Beschichtung‘.
Dates to be announced. You can also sign up for the Wandelgrund newsletter to receive information when there is something to report in general. (This newsletter is not written by me. You can find my newsletter here, both are in German).
There's help to get you started with plant dyeing at home! Dyeing kits to get you started right away are available in English.
And I have a deep-dive video course if you want to really get into the basics - if you prefer reading, I recommend my e-book (both in German).
Dates don't fit, or you want to combine two workshops? Are you developing a brand or would you like to produce with plant-based dyes, but want to understand the material yourself first? Workshops can be customized to your area of interest. And if you are interested in a particular material or specific colors, we can focus entirely on that.
