Sustainable textile coloring with dyes from leaves and flowers, the kitchen and compost.
Combine nature’s own pigments together with knowledge of household fabrics and a little chemistry to give great possibilities for experimentation and personal expression. The plants, flowers and leaves around us are rich in pigments. With simple, non-corrosive methods, it is possible to use these pigments. We can use them to make prints on fabric or to dye entire pieces of fabric. We will also spin a small amount of yarn from nettle fibers. The course runs from 7pm Thursday to 3pm Sunday. Price: Course: 3950 NOK. Materials: 500 NOK. Room and board for six days: 3150 NOK.
