Workshops and Courses - Robin Paris

Workshops offered in natural dyeing with resist for making dyed paintings, prints or decorative fabric, using primarily woad (indigo) with natural vat methods. Hot wax or paste resist is applied by drawing, painting, printing or mark-making, which enables imagery, texture and pattern.

Resist and natural dye workshops are available for all levels: beginners and improvers; artists, craftspeople and technicians, art and textile groups; primary schools through to teacher training courses; and cultural, historical, community and environmental organisations. Individually tailored workshops in my studio are also sometimes available. Please ask for any further information.
