Orchard Dyeing

13 August 2022
9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Immerse yourself in the amazing world of natural dyes, in this workshop focusing on the striking warm and rich palette available to us from the orchard trees on the farm.
Using foraged dyestuffs, make your own colour baths from scratch. Find out about how different fibres, methods and mordants can be used to fix and alter the colours through discussion and practical experiments.

As well as yarn samples we will undertake a small dyeing project (such as a needle roll or scarf, exact project tbc!) as well.

A two course bakery lunch, refreshments and all materials are included
