Do Your Old Garments Need Some Colour in their Lives?
This third Reflow workshop will be hosted by Cor Botanicals and will provide the knowledge and resources necessary for giving your old clothes a new life by passing down the ancient technique of natural dyeing!

The workshop will focus on the application of natural dyeing as a way to both upcycle your aged, white garments AND reconnect with nature. You will explore the entire process of natural dyeing, from the pre-dyeing fabric treatment, to the technique of dyeing itself, to experimenting with pH colour modifying.
