What will be covered in the class?
Natural dye and needlework artist Ciara Callaghan will be leading a workshop exploring stitch resist techniques and natural dyeing. In these workshops we will be exploring how we can create resists using a needle and thread to make personalised, beautiful patterns in cloth which will only be exposed after the fabric has been dyed.
The dye we will be using on the day is tea! One which everyone has in the cupboard. In your materials pack you will receive an iron modifier, this will help us achieve charcoal and slate greys which will help patterns stand out.
What you’ll need to find at home
Access to a kettle
- A pan
- Fabric (t-shirt or dress, just make sure it is white or a similar light colour)
Ciara Callaghan is a fibre artist based in Milton Keynes. She uses needlework and natural dyeing to explore themes around female empowerment, dream imagery and fluxes of reality.
