A FREE natural leaf and flower dyeing workshop using the Japanese technique of hapa-zome



Create mandalas (circular patterns) and naturalistic scenes by hammering flowers and leaves into fabric squares of calico.

The natural pigments will transfer to the fabric to make a botanical image made from plant dyes. A fun and simple activity, especially if you like bashing with a hammer!
