DYE & DINE: Natural Dyeing with Food Waste

A workshop & lunch with Studio Tinta

12-3pm, Saturday April 11

Get together for a delicious vegetarian lunch and natural dyeing workshop with Studio Tinta at Onwards Studio in Newcastle, NSW. Together we'll make a wide range of colours and patterns from plant materials commonly found in your kitchen and garden, including avocado stones, onion skins, pomegranate, marigolds and geraniums. You are invited to bring any special plants or flowers from home and we can discuss if and how we can extract their colour. We will use the food byproducts from our meal and imbue their colours and patterns on a silk scarf and silk and cotton fabric swatches. No experience necessary. This workshop is designed for complete beginners and those who have dabbled in dyeing at home but are keen to learn some new knowledge. You'll come away with a beginner's knowledge of different dye plants, types of fabrics, mordants, sustainability and equipment. Plus, you'll take home a hand-dyed silk scarf, fabric colour swatches to use as reuseable wrapping paper or your own craft projects, and the resources to continue practising dyeing at home.

A vegetarian lunch (*please get in touch about dietary requirements)

Coffee & tea

1 x 100% silk scarf

Silk and cotton swatches to use as reusable wrapping paper or your own craft projects 

Paper cards decorated with our handmade natural inks
