Design garments and textile with botanical print and natural dyes: a collaboration with Irit Dulman ( textile artist) and Shahaf Shriki ( Designer, dressmaker)

In this workshop, you will create a garment from your eco printed fabrics.

The workshop will be divided into two parts.

In the botanical print part, You are going to learn several techniques of botanical print and natural dyes and you will make samples with various leaves and different dyes.  We will analyze your sample and identify where is the potential and then you will take it to a higher stage by making more samples focusing on your chosen design. You will practice the techniques, your layout, your composition on the fabrics. A special attention will be given to the design aspect of the work.

In the sewing part of the workshop, you are going to learn how to create an inspiration board that will lead you to your desired design of a garment than basic pattern making and how to sew a muslin and eventually the garment itself.

When your samples of the dyed fabrics will be defined and your kind of garment also than you are going to apply this design on bigger fabrics that afterward will be cut and sew into a beautiful dress, skirt, top, etc...
