We are excited to announce that we will be hosting another natural dyeing workshop; collaborating with Nelson Molloy.
This unique workshop brings together the natural dyeing techniques of Nelson Molloy with plants grown and foraged from Jane Street Community Garden. Join us for an experimental workshop that combines creativity, community, and environmental consciousness.

Together, we will explore the Jane Street Community Garden, foraging for leaves, flowers, seeds, berries and roots that hold the potential to become stunning natural dyes. From there, we will spend the rest of the workshop in the Nelson Molloy studio, immersing yourself in the captivating world of plant dyes as we delve into the nature of colour creation. Learn about traditional techniques and discover how the pigments present in foraged plants can be harnessed to produce an array of vibrant hues and the possibility of prints. Through hands-on activities, you will gain practical skills and knowledge, unlocking the secrets of botanical dyeing.

The workshop is not only an opportunity to unleash your creativity but also a chance to connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for sustainability and craftsmanship. Collaborate, exchange ideas, and forge new friendships in a warm and welcoming environment.

Let us celebrate conscious and sustainable fashion, through upcycling old clothing items, using natural techniques and introducing you to the vast and unique world of dying with plants.

Join us for an inspiring day of exploration, education, and transformation as we breathe new life into garments using plant dyes. Reserve your spot today, and let's create a world where traditional techniques and sustainable practices converge to shape a brighter and more beautiful future.

To assist in making this experience more accessible, we are offering a special price of $39 (normally $95) for this unique workshop.
