In this class, you will learn how to prepare and produce dyes from both imported and locally sourced plants, discovering their effects on different fibres, for example, linen, silk and wool. This year in addition to revisiting his methods, including his latest discoveries and continually evolving experiments, he will also provide an in-depth exploration of tannins, looking at their variety and where they are found.

There will be plenty of new material for people who have previously attended one of Michel’s masterclasses, but it is also suitable for people who have just started to explore natural dyeing, and who are eager to learn from one of the world’s undisputed experts.

Some previous experience of ecological dyeing is desirable.

About the tutor

Michel Garcia’s reputation as a true master of natural dyeing is undisputed. He is based in France, but his work takes him around the world where he continues to explore sustainable methods to extract colour from plants.

We are delighted that Michel is returning to Newburgh to share his extensive knowledge with a class at Big Cat Textiles.
