Natural dye workshops. Hands on experience with plant and wood dyes.
Floral design workshops, focused on unstructured modern floral design using locally sourced flowers, foraging and no florist foam or chemicals.
Workshops being scheduled for August 2018 in Oregon and October 2018 in Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Australia.
Teaching workshops and introducing students to the magic of natural, botanical dyes is one of the great joys of my life; in 2019 I'll be expanding my classes around the world. Join me in Hong Kong, Seoul, England, the US and Australia, won't you?

Botanical Dyeing | Seoul, South Korea | April 24th 2019
In collaboration with Hyeji Jang of Gather and Assemble
I am so excited to be teaming up with my friend Hyeji Jang of Gather and Assemble in Seoul to teach a joint full day of beautiful colour in hand dyed silks (me) and floral design (her). Our day will include time for some lovely refreshment and one-on-one time with each student.
My workshops include an introduction to working with natural dyes derived from plants, wood and earth; hands on experiments with silks in natural dye vats and every student leaves with a completed small project and some Nettle goodies. The three hour class will include refreshments, take home notes and of course every beautiful thing you've made in class.
All supplies are included.
Tickets are £200 (about $250 US) for the morning class, including a beautiful lunch. Please contact Gather and Assemble if you would also like to add the afternoon bouquet design class.
I would love to meet you! Please do get in touch if you’ve got any questions, or click the button below to purchase a ticket. You can also use the link to Hyeji’s website if you’d be more comfortable purchasing through her.

A Morning of Hands-On Learning at lovely Witte Flower Farm
In this workshop we'll learn the basics of preparing natural fabrics to accept plant dyes, using the dyes themselves, experimenting with dye bath strength for a variation of colour, layering colours, adjusting colour with mordants and experimenting with colours on various natural fibres like silk, hemp and linen. Students will receive one-on-one instruction, have hands-on experience with dyeing using plant-based colour and finish the class with their own silk ribbons, a cotton-canvas dyed apron and great foundation from which to further explore natural dyes.
We will break for a lovely light lunch in the Oregon summer sunshine, prepared by Kristen and her crew at the farm. The menu will be based around what's fresh and local and will feature rustic breads, sweet stone fruit and fresh salads. Please let us know if you have dietary needs we should keep in mind.
We’ll be joined by talented professional photographer and my dear friend Kris LeBoeuf, who will document our work so that everyone will also receive beautiful images to use in social media, journaling, or just as a lovely keepsake.
The cost includes lunch, all supplies and take home goodies, plus all the things you will have made.
If you would prefer to pay in dollars, please visit my Etsy shop for the same workshop
There is a maximum attendance of 12 students, to ensure that everyone gets plenty of hands-on personal instruction and time to get elbow-deep in beautiful colour and flowers.
Witte Flower Farm,
August 25th 2018
In the afternoon I will be teaching a modern, relaxed bouquet style, perfect for weddings or styled shoots. We'll be gathering flowers from Kristen's beautiful farm, working with their natural shapes and discussing colour choices and movement.
At the end of the afternoon of course we'll style our bouquets with Nettle's naturally dyed silk ribbons and our work will be beautifully captured by our photographer, Kris, so that each student will receive a set of professional images for their portfolios or social media.
If you would like to see more of my floral work, please visit my flower website here.
If you would like to add an afternoon of bouquet design to the morning's workshop, or if you would prefer to purchase it as a stand alone event, please click here to find out more or to secure your space in this small class.
In the evening, Portland company Serenade will be hosting a dinner and live music event on the farm. More details to follow. If you would like to add this to your day's loveliness, I will update all students as soon as sign up and more information is available for this beautiful event under the Oregon summer stars.
