Beschreibung

Plant dyed fibers are surprisingly vibrant and bright. With the right precautions they are a true and sustainable alternative to industrial and synthetic techniques.

Some of the ingredients can be gathered in nature or grown in the garden quite easily, others you probably already have in your kitchen. During this workshop of 6 hours Anna & Juan will teach you the basics of natural dyes.

You will review suitable textile fiber types and learn how to prepare and mordant them. You will either dye a skein of wool or a piece of silk (approx. 175 x 35 cm) – applying the Itajime folding technique – while you can choose between several dye baths, that will be set up collectively. Further, you will colour various samples of fabric and yarn with seasonal dye stuffs that you can bring along or collect on the spot. Each person will be given a sample card in which all results will be archived and labeled.

We will have a look at the durability of certain colours, learn about textile care and discuss no-goes, possible alternatives and aspects of sustainability.

“Anna & Juan” is a collective formed by the designers Josefina Eliggi and Luzius Schnellmann in 2011, dedicated to developing sustainable textiles based on the use of plant dyes. Thrilled by how vibrant and varied natural colours can be, Josefina and Luzius have been doing an intense research on locally available materials, colour sources and old dyeing recipes for more than three years.
