Aboubakar teaches workshops as often as he can. With more than thirty years of experience as a natural dyer earning his living through his craft, Aboubakar's aim is to share his passion and knowledge of this craft and materials, and enable others to come away with a working knowledge for professional results.
His workshops are immersive and intensive, and are conducted using vats or quantities of dyestuff consistent with a working dyer's practice. In addition to covering preparation of dyestuffs and dyeing procedure, these workshops examine the choice and preparation of textiles for dyeing, work-flows for efficient dyeing, cleaning and maintaining equipment and post-treatment of dyed fabric or yarn for the strongest, most colourfast results. These workshops are aimed at all levels, from complete beginner to skilled practicing dyer and everyone in between.
