Ce vei face

After a brief welcome and personal introduction in my fully equipped studio I will make you familiar with the basic aspects of natural dyeing. We are going to visit Mercado del Puerto were we will find some of our dye stuff. A 90x90 cm silk scarf is waiting for you to get creative designing unique patterns with all kinds of natural materials. Leaves, flowers, tree bark and locally sourced cochineal are used to create a singular, unrepeatable pattern. With the bundle dye or eco print technique, the pigments from our dye stuff are directly transferred to the textile. Hands on, its time to play!
While the dye pot is sitting on the cooker we have plenty of time to dig a bit deeper into the history of cochineal on the Canaries. This little bugs, that are cultivated on the prickly pear cacti, were very important for the local economy.
A little breakfast and time to socialize is going to help to wait for the exciting moment of opening your personal creation, that is going to be a materialized memory of you holidays.
I would be pleased to share one of my biggest passions with you!
Other things to note
German is my native language but I speak English and Spanish fluently. I don´t have any problem to teach my activity in any of these languages.

I am German but 20 years ago I fell deeply in love with Gran Canaria, its nature, people and lifestyle.
My textile studio is located in the vibrant capital Las Palmas, close to the Las Canteras beach. As a hand weaver I create unique textiles like scarfs and shawls. I am officially recognized as a craftsman by the Island Government. Some years ago, a local weaver and dyer taught me how to transfer color from plants and the Canarian cochineal bug to natural fibers. I love to share my passion and knowledge through hand tailored workshops.

Unde vei fi

My workshop is located in a hundred year old building, that has been a naval mechanic workshop. Many years ago, the dry dock of the harbor was in my street. We are going to visit Mercado del Puerto, which is the most important example for cast-iron architecture on the Canary Islands. During more than hundred years it has been a vivid representation of the dynamic development of the city and the commercial port.

I've always found it a little difficult at times to connect to the Canary Islands culturally in each visit (there's a popular notion that visitors usually just fly & flop), so we made an effort to book an experience this time. It was one of the best decisions really - culturally immersive, educational and simply FUN all at the same time. And we got to take home a unique keepsake - our very own hand-dyed silk scarf! Ulrike was very knowledgeable about her crafts, her workshop is intuitive and relatable. It was a wonderful morning spent.

Being with Uli was amazing. She's one of the most amazing people I ever met. She greeted us in her studio and explained what n ingredients she uses to dye the scarves and even explained where she got the ingredients from and whether they were specific to the Canaries or could be found elsewhere. She also took us on a short walk to the market and explained that while a lot of things in nature are colourful, they don't always produce colour. When it came to designing our scarf she was really helpful in helping me pick out the right ingredients and finalising my design. I'm really grateful that I got to spend the last day of 2019 with Uli and I would love to visit her again the next time I'm in Gran Canaria :)

I loved my hours spent with Ulrike. We were aply to create & dye such an amazing colourful silk scarf, while I got to learn the history and the many ways of getting colour out from nature. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone.

A most enjoyable experience. Host was friendly and knowledgeable. She was able to pass on her knowledge in a practical fashion and you also come away with an end product and wanting to try out the techniques for yourself when you get home.

Uli hat sich viel Zeit für uns zwei genommen und wir haben viel über das Färben mit Naturfarben sowie das Leben auf den Kanaren gelernt. Die selbstgemachten Seidentücher sind ein voller Erfolg geworden und wir werden sie auch daheim tragen. Alles in allem sehr zu empfehlen!
