Join multidisciplinary fibre artist, Elena Tochev, in an upcoming workshop on natural dyeing.
Together we’ll walk through the forest to connect with nature and explore what plants give colour to natural fibres. At the end of the workshop, you’ll take home your very own botanically dyed, silk/wool scarf. The workshop is infused with mindful practices to help inspire your creative spirit.
