May 19-21, 2017 by Pia Best

blue magic

Pia Best–Reininghaus from Germany - fashiondesigner and textile artist - has specialised herself in fashion, felting, shibori, natural dyeing and natural printing with leaves. After a couple of years in experimenting she is ready to share this technique and her way of making designs with the plantmaterial. Join us around the cookingpots and wait for the magic to be revealed......


On the first day the participants will learn the basic instructions of dyeing with indigo crystals and ecoprinting based on fabric samples like wool, silk, cotton, linen and viscose jersey. Pia will prepare pieces of viscose jersey. The pieces of fabric will be bundled and steamed. The second day will be used to dye and print on first quality jersey for the garments. The third day will be used for sewing the pieces together.

Tip: combine with natural dyes/synthetic dyes and Shibori workshop at 17-18 May.


All workshops are being taught in Dutch and/or English. We will serve fresh coffee and homemade lunches, with healthy salades, farmers bread and several Dutch cheeses.
