About your host

I worked as a ceramist for many years, now I have a great passion for tincture with plants, with which I work all year. L'Atelier Verde is the name of the natural clothing line, in linen, hemp, cotton and wool. that I personally dye. I'm giving the prints the second edition of the manual, in which I draw the basic techniques of Natural Dyeing. I love making people passionate about my work!

What we’ll do

We use the shibori technique on cotton gauze, we fold it, we create designs by tying the fabric around buttons, stones, wooden squares. We can also sew it and pack it and then dip it in the natural indigo bath. Then we untie it and see the result of our hidden design. After a couple of tests, we face a scarf, dye it and bring our head home!
