"I am really fascinated about the many possibilities plants and nature give us to be creative. I love to see all the different colors and shades that you can create with natural dyeing and I really wanted to learn it too.
Your course really was a great way to step into natural dyeing. It was not only very fun and exciting, but also a very good course structure to learn everything in detail.
For me, it was a great surprise to see my collected pine cones turned out light pink when dyeing with them. I didn’t expect this earlier and it made me very curious to experiment with different dyeing material. Maybe, I will be able to create my own cloth with natural dyed fabrics and definitely will be trying out more dyeing in the future. It really got me ;) ."
