She created a new Plant Dye Kit together with De Steek and this workshop is developed with all the dyes that are included in the kit. It’s a great way to learn the basics of natural dyeing and to go home with samples and recipes on different fabrics and with different dyes, to get you going.

> Barberry – Berberis vulgaris
> Black Rice – Oryza sativa
> Goldenrod – Solidago nemoralis
> Hibiscus – Hibiscus rosa-sinensis
> Marigold – Calendula officinalis
> Sandalwood – Santalum album

> Hemp Canvas
> Hemp Jersey
> Organic Woven Cotton
> Soy and Bamboo Interfacing
> Tencel

After this workshop, you will go home with a sample kit of all the different dyes and fabrics, mentioned above. All use of tools and dyes are included in the workshop, but if you want to continue at home, it is also possible to purchase some dyes or the kit to take home.

Samm will also serve her own developed ‘natural dye teas’ during the workshop, so lovely different types of tea and sweets are also included with the workshop. The workshop is taking place in our dyeing garden!
