“Dyeing for Colour” NEW session in October

A workshop series where you get to create your own fabric!

With special guest tutor Michelle Murden from Createandmore.

Workshop 1 – the basics.

Thursday 25 October 10am to 1:30pm

No experience is necessary for this ‘starter’ class.

Working with a two dye process you will create fabric in a rainbow of both warm and cool tones while learning about colour mixing along the way. You will also have practice in creating texture so that by the end of the workshop you will have 24 pieces of beautiful fabric to take home and enjoy….or to use in one of Vanessa’s fab projects!

$120 – includes all materials (fabric, dyes, chemicals, equipment and instructions)

Class size is strictly limited to 8, so book early to avoid disappointment.

As this is a workshop with a guest tutor, 50% deposit is required at the time of booking and the balance must be paid in full a minimum 2 weeks before the class.

  • Participant will need to bring:
    • Container to carry home wet dyed fabric (eg several plastic icecream containers, kitty litter tray, bucket/s etc)
    • Protective clothing – depending how messy you are!
    • Rubber gloves – a must, as the dye will stain your hands for a while.
