Dye and print an organic silk scarf with Catherine Lewis, a natural dye and textile specialist.
Relax and create whilst learning about locally gathered plant dyes and how they blend into the materials that you'll use. You will create your own beautiful soft and warming silk scarf, patterned and dyed with plants known for their healing and medicinal properties, such as turmeric, rose, avocado, walnut, St. Johns wort and agrimony.
Textile artist, dyer, printer and ink-maker Catherine Lewis makes all her healthy artwork and handmade inks at her nearby workshop in Cardiff. She is inspired by the natural beauty, local materials and the post-industrial vistas of the Welsh landscape.
