Selwyn Community Education is based at Selwyn College, Kohimarama, Auckland.

Explore the beauty of natural dyeing on wool and silk. Participants will learn to prepare the fibre to receive the colour and to extract the colour from natural plants. Through this beautiful and sustainable process each participant will dye wool and a scarf in a variety of colours.

You will go home with your own dyed silk scarf and some dyed wool for future use. You'll also take home course notes about plants to use and learn how to continue natural dyeing at home.

Exact colours provided on the day will depend on the availability of natural materials harvested before the course - it is likely that the class will use eucalyptus for gold, acorns for brown, dyers chamomile for bright yellow. Cochineal will be used for red.

Bring your lunch.

Our mission is to provide quality affordable and accessible lifelong learning opportunities for our community.
