Rope Dying Workshop

Create your own hand-dyed rope to use for your own woven masterpiece!

Ever wanted to try your hand at dying your own rope? This workshop is perfect for creating your own hand-dyed rope to use for macrame, weaving, dreamcatchers and other crafty projects. 

This workshop will take you through the basics of hand-dying your own cotton rope, teaching you various dying techniques and advice, shared amongst other like-minded 'crafters'. This is an intensive workshop aimed at beginners, aged 18 and above. Taught by artist Melissa Carey who has created large macrame wall pieces and art installations and knows all the secrets of hand-dying.

What you get: one large bundle (25 metres) of hand-dyed rope + a bundle of extra dye per person, instructions, new crafty skills, a scrumptious homemade cake with herbal tea, chats and smiles. All materials and equipment will be provided, along with safety equipment and aprons (please wear old clothes and shoes!!). Extra white rope will be available for purchase. Colours of dye will be the choice of the artist and will vary at each workshop - giving you unique hand-dyed rope every time!

Cost: $70 per person

Workshop dates TBA (SUBSCRIBE to stay in the loop!)

PLEASE NOTE: Gloves, aprons, safety masks and safety glasses will be used during this workshop as chemical dyes will be used. Please wear old clothes and shoes that won't mind a bit of splashed colour! You will need to take home your dyed rope that will still be wet, or you can leave the rope to dry at the studio and pick up the following day/evening. 


So come and be inspired, unleash your creativity, get back to your roots, learn new skills, get your fingers moving, and be immersed in the present moment. After all, that's what craft should be all about! Lock in your next craft session and take time out for yourself, or bring a friend for a unique night out!
