Did you know that only natural materials can hold indigo dye? On our napkin-dyeing workshop, you'll work with 100% cotton napkins, hand-scored and finished by our teacher Ghazal. You'll get to make four total, so you can create an ombre selection like this set, or mix and match the different dyeing techniques taught by Ghazal to create your own totally unique set.
Hello, ombre! This beautiful set of napkins is hand-dyed with natural indigo, leaving each one in for a different amount of time to achieve this beautiful monochrome rainbow. On our indigo dyeing workshop on Saturday 26th, our expert teacher Ghazal will walk you through every stage of the process, teaching you about the history of indigo dyeing, along with several techniques, so you can then choose which to use when making your own set of four table napkins. So, would you ombre your own set?

📣 Exciting announcement! Due to requests from some of our amazing customers, we've added on a little freebie to our Indigo Dyeing Napkin Workshop. Our awesome teacher Ghazal has offered a little extra time at the end if you would like to bring along something of your own to dye as well! Not only will you learn different natural indigo dyeing techniques and make your own set of hand-dyed cotton table napkins, but you can use the skills you've just learned to give new life to something from your closet or home. Just make sure that it's a 100% natural fabric, such as cotton, linen, viscose or rayon, so that the indigo can dye it. Join us on the afternoon of Saturday 26th January at our studio in Bethnal Green to get dyeing!
