Discover the patterns and colors behind the most vivid flowers. In this workshop you will get your hands dirty and explore how to print textiles with every part of fresh and dried flowers. By using traditional techniques, you'll learn how to turn a piece of organic silk into a scarf with patterns and colors in beautiful and unexpected shades. 

Elin de Jong

In 2014 Elin started a natural dye garden where she focuses on experimentation and documentation of natural dye and the making of naturally dyed fabrics. Each skein of yarn or piece of fabric is colored with natural dyes, using special techniques – sometimes dating back as far as the Middle Ages. These techniques can take hours or even days in order to make each color unique. The colors are achieved entirely through natural dyes made from plants, including roots, bark, wood, flowers, leaves and insects. Elin shows her research through art projects, articles and workshops while striving for a more sustainable and slower world.
