Samples coloured with natural dyes drying on fibrocement

In this workshop we will explore ways of colouring paper with natural dyes. We will also discuss the ways in which dyes and pigments differ and how they can be applied to paper and paper pulp. Materials used for dyeing include oxalis flowers, avocado pips, loquat leaves, onionskins and gum leaves.

You will be making paper from cotton pulp that is coloured with various dyes.

The papermaking method is one in which small quantities of pulp can be made into sheets using limited water and equipment.
