Spend 2 gentle days stitching, natural dyeing and embellishing a sweet silk apron, designed beautifully to adapt to any wearer. The apron is 100% silk luxury cloth and it is thoughtfully designed to add a useful luxury item to your wardrobe.
We will work with silk and wool threads, maybe some cotton, those we will dye or those left undyed, and small amounts of favourite natural cloth to individualise the apron with your own personal marks before dyeing the whole in a glorious bath of leaves
