10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Immerse yourself further in the amazing world of natural dyes with this special two day workshop. Learn about the wide array of colours possible from common ‘trees and weeds’ and using foraged dyestuffs from the farm, make your own colour baths from scratch. Find out about how different fibres, methods and mordants can be used to fix and alter colours through discussion and practical experiments. As well as full size yarn skeins we will be dyeing a range of smaller pieces to make additional items across the workshop including a scarf and a needle roll.
This course aims to provide locally sourced yarn and preloved fabrics to make this workshop as green and eco-friendly as possible. We can provide vegetable fibres only if required but they will have be put in a shared dye bath.
A full homemade farm lunch, elvensess and afternoon cake are provided both days as are all materials.
