Experience the art of slow living. In this workshop, you will learn how to dye fabric using natural plant material to create a set of two organic cotton cocktail napkins. Making the dye from scratch using materials like eucalyptus or avocados, we learn to appreciate our otherwise wasted skins, pits and dried leaves to give them a new life. The slow natural dyeing process allows for a hygge afternoon with a cup of tea and light snacks as we look over our pot of colour. Your end result is two beautifully dyed napkins that make for a perfect keepsake from your Danish lifestyle trip or just the right souvenir for a design and craft lover back home. Try it out and fall in love with the relaxing process and natural colours. You'll be equipped with the knowledge to continue creating and dyeing back home. *Please note, this class involves some wait time from when we make the dye to when it is ready to use. Natural dyeing is a slow process that cannot be rushed. Be prepared for time chatting, snacking, reviewing dye resources and stirring. *Minimum 2 colours will be available and maximum 4 for larger groups (due to space and heat sources).
I am a Canadian designer living and working in Copenhagen for a little over four years now. A creative through and through, I can't sit still with just one project. I came to Copenhagen as a textile product designer for a Danish children's interior brand and I now own a floral design and styling company here. In my spare time love I hosting workshops and sharing knowledge and skills with both children and adults. I have 7 years of experience teaching art and design, and my lifetime of passion for making that I am ready to share! More on my floral company: www.aeipathystudio.dk
