In this 3 hour workshop, you will learn how to create amazing textile-based objects. Using natural dyeing methods you will learn how to bundle wrap and create traditional danish fabric designs using a paste resist method used by Vikings. This is quite experimental and sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't but that's the beauty of nature!. First, you'll learn about fabrics before moving onto bundle dying with natural Danish flora and fauna, before moving onto the last make of the day being the resist patterns. Using items to create patterns and stamping textures. This workshop is so much fun and gives you an insightful view into Danish living, along with local ecosystems and textiles all with a smile and the hygeness Danes are known for.
