Workshop facilitators are Natural Plant Dyer and artist Victoria Larnach alongside Permaculturist Janene Price of Love to Grow, who will be sharing their plant knowledge and methods of growing seasonal plants and dyeing with the organic fructose indigo vat.

Participants will be dyeing with all-natural Indigo pigment and bundle dyeing with seasonal plants from the Harvest garden, creating various surface design techniques on a scarf and bento bag - a Japanese inspired design to hold and transport goods - as a sustainable alternative to shopping or market bags. Along with the seasonal plants offered in the garden, we will also be making an organic cold-pressed oil with your plants and herbs of choice, ready to use for applying topically for medicinal purposes, cooking and seasoning. 

The day will begin with a refreshment and canapés courtesy of Harvest, as Victoria shares about indigo as one of the oldest plant dye methods in the world, it's lineage, brief history and a discussion of it’s importance in cultures around the globe. We will address issues and challenges around sustainability, chemical dyeing, cultural loss, as well as explore our connection back to Earth. Janene is our garden specialist at Harvest, and will share her knowledge around living more in alignment with nature, the importance of growing your own fresh produce at home and how you can implement small steps in your own daily life to live more naturally, fruitfully and holistically.

We will then bundle dye our scarves using plants from the garden, exploring how various pigments from Mother Nature can be used to create colour. Moving into indigo dyeing, we will surface design our bento bags using beautiful shibori techniques to create a truly unique piece. The final stage of our workshop will be infusing a bottle of cold-pressed oil with the plants. Participants will leave with 3 finished project pieces, and knowledge of various chemical-free natural dyes and extractions.
