We warmly welcome you to join us for a natural dye workshop to learn how to use food waste as a dye! Natural dye artist Enni Heinä will facilitate the workshop together with Seams Helsinki at Välitila studio.

In the workshop we will dye linen with onion skins, avocado pits and skins, and learn how to achieve beautiful hues of pink, orange and yellow using kitchen waste. Natural dyer Enni Heinä will instruct how to mordant (pre-treat) the fabric to make the color stick and last. All the participants get two pieces of linen (~ 40 x 40 cm) to create two different hues to keep forever. A couple of tie dye techniques are also instructed for those who like to create a more vivid pattern. 

The workshop is divided into two sessions: Friday evening is for the mordanting and Saturday afternoon we come together again for the dyeing. There’s also a shortcut version available for those who can come only on Saturday for the dyeing part (pre-treated fabrics are provided).
