Discover how to extract colours from local seasonal foliage.
In this workshop Arina will share her rich experience with you as you create a beautifully dyed fabric panel using foliage foraged from Ōtautahi. This is a chemical free process making it safe for both participants and our land.
Learn about traditional dye making practices, how to gather natural materials and how to create your own natural dye palette.
Arina approaches this creative practice from a love for nature and with a background in architecture, graphic design and theatre decor.
