Workshop: Natural Dye Course

Discover the beauty of plant-dyed fabrics

With a resurgence of interest in colour from plants and inspired by fashion pieces in the Worthing museum collection, we will make a palette of colours from dye plants, some from the museum garden.

Before 1856, all colour on cloth was made from plants, insects or minerals. We will explore the invention of synthetic dyes and how they changed the course of the fashion and textile industry.

In this introductory workshop, discover the beauty of plant-dyed fabric and make a sample card of colours extending the spectrum with simple kitchen Chemistry.
