KIDS SUMMER NATURAL WORKSHOPS

Creative & Natural Summer Workshops for children in Amsterdam West. Free to join so everyone can experience the magic of creating something yourself with natural and residual materials!

Roua trained artists and natural dyer. She love to share the love for the craft, natural dyeing. The colors that nature brings us are magical! she believe, it is high time for some positivity and creativity. In this crazy period where parents and children still consume a lot behind the screen instead of creating. Therefore she devised a series of children's workshops where the focus is on working with your hands with natural and residual materials. And using these materials to make your own wearable creation! In this way children learn to work with natural materials and how you can still use waste to create something beautiful. She is hosting new summer kids workshops at her atelier and collaborating with creative artists.

Shibori patterns & Dyeing with Natural Indigo, Avocado and Turmeric

Sunday 17 - July

During the Workshop, guided by Roua the children will get to work with different Shibori techniques. Shibori is an ancient Japanese dyeing technique in which you create patterns on clothing by folding, binding, clamping and sewing. With this technique you avoid painting some parts of the fabric and create the most beautiful manual patterns. Everyone creates their own print on their T-shirt by using the different Shibori techniques.
