What you'll do
During the workshop I will give an introduction about natural dyeing. You can see and feel different colors. What different textile materials are there? What do you need in order to work with plant material? Then we will study the special color blue; indigo. This comes from the Japanese plant indigofera tinctoria. I will give some background information and then we will get to work! Inspired by the island of Mallorca and the beautiful blue sea you can dye an organic cotton tote bag yourself. We will use different techniques to develop beautiful patterns. The workshop will last approximately 1.5 hours and afterwards you can bring your own bag! A unique souvenir from Mallorca!
hai! I am Elize and I have a passion for natural textile dyeing. It is a beautiful craft that gives you the most beautiful colors of plants, seeds, fruit, peel, bark or other organic material. With this we will dye a tote bag. I was inspired for the first time when I was in Japan to learn about textiles years ago and got to know the intense blue color indigo. From plant to color was a real discovery for me. Totally ecologically friendly and all in the outdoors. I studied the techniques further and am still surprised every day by the results it produces! Real gifts from nature!
There will be refreshments.

Where you'll be
The workshop will take place in my studio at home. I live in a gorgeous town Colonia de Sant pere, right at the sea. It's great to combine this workshop with a stroll along the boulevard.
