Natural Dye Plant Walk - London

35.00

Battersea Park, London

Friday 12th April, 6pm-8pm

Learn about the plants growing all around us that can be used to create natural dyes for textiles. Before the development of synthetic dyes in the 19th Century, a colours came directly from plants, fungi, insects, rocks, or lichen.

On this walk, we will be getting to know around 15 wild and cultivated plants that are growing commonly in parks, hedges, waysides, and gardens that we can use to create colour for textiles projects and the poisonous plants you should watch out for it order to forage safely. Looking at how to gather materials responsibly and where to look for abundance of wild plants in your local area. We will look as colour samples and discuss different techniques for extracting and applying colour.

I am interested in developing connection with the natural world through developing practical relationships with plants, so I will also be touching on other medicinal and food based uses of these plants,
