The masterclass will take place at the London EDITION hotel, located in central London’s Fitzrovia, where you’ll be surrounded by the extraordinary style that emanates from the integrity and character of such a historic building, blended with a simple, sophisticated design sensibility. You’ll learn how to use the ‘bundle dye method’, which will be demonstrated on one of Sunspel’s premium 100% long staple cotton T-shirts. Each guest will hand-dye their own, creating a truly unique piece of clothing.

Sunspel is known for making the finest quality luxury wardrobe staples, and has a long history of using natural plant dyes such as indigo or woad. Floom is a dynamic new online destination for beautifully curated flowers and plants. Both share a love for artisanal craft and natural materials and have come together through shared values of craftsmanship and quality.

What a great opportunity to participate in an exciting workshop in a dynamic social hub where you’ll be able to work, relax, socialise and learn about the art of floral bundle-dyeing with expert Cara Marie Piazza. Don’t miss it!
