Gina Mastio - Plant dyed Nuno felting

Express yourself creatively with plant dyes and nuno felt, creating one of a kind sculpted clothing. Suitable for all levels, from beginning to well-seasoned, let me share my knowledge with you.

Beginning with an exploration of plant dyes and the abundance of natural colour around us, plus some techniques to alter them using mordants, we will experiment with silk, wool and cotton fabrics and you are welcome to bring in fabrics of your own if you would like to experiment further.

You will create a range of samples which you may choose to incorporate into your creations in following days. We will also explore nuno felt making, beginning with making samples and then a scarf, incorporating some of your dye samples into these, followed by over dyeing to experiment with the lovely combination of nuno felt and plant dyes.

We will also explore felt making over a plastic relief pattern to make a cushion and then post dye with plants. Becoming more proficient in these skills, you will plan your major piece, a reversible nuno-felt plant dyed sleeveless vest.

I will teach you the subtleties of this technique and help you develop your own design, allowing room for individual creativity and style.

All experience levels welcome
