Natural dyeing workshop: make your fashion more sustainable with fashion designer Andrea Vytlačilová

This two-hour-workshop with Andrea Vytlačilová, winner of Grayson Perry's annual “Design a Fabulous Dress for Grayson Perry“ contest, serves as a brief introduction to natural dyeing for complete beginners as well as fashion enthusiasts interested in learning more about approaching textile design in a more sustainable way. Together with Andrea you will explore the possibilities of natural dyes and their restrictions gaining a practical knowledge of the dyes and taking home with you your own dyed fabric swatches ready to give your old garments a colourful (and sustainable) makeover. Andrea will also share her experience of naturally dyeing her final collection as part of her degree at Central Saint Martins.

Please bring with you small pieces of natural fabrics (cotton, silk, linen) you would like to dye, e.g. parts of a cotton shirt, linen napkins or a small pillowcase, and a notepad/notebook.

Age guidance: 18+
Tickets: £10

The workshop is part of the Andrea Vytlačilová & Josef Zlamal exhibition To the Edge of the World and Back to Their Roots at the Czech Centre (20 March – 31 May 2020)
