Natural dyes workshop

10 December 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Come and explore the power of natural colour through our workshop run by Artist, Dyer and Grower, Ffion Taverner.

During this workshop we will explore the hidden qualities of the natural world, working with homegrown flowers that have been dried from this year’s crops, as well as traditional dye ingredients to create a spectrum of colour on natural fabrics. This workshop welcomes beginners looking to experiment with natural colour.

Ffion will show us how to prepare our materials for dyeing, create dye baths, as well as more experimental methods of transferring colour onto cloth. This will be a very playful day focusing on bringing lots of colour into your lives during the winter months.

You’ll be making your own ribbon lengths and a hemmed piece of silk that can be used as a gift, wrapping cloth, or something special just for you. We will also be creating several dyed samples on a variety of natural fibres including organic cotton, linen, and wool from Gutchpool Farm.

All materials are provided, along with plenty of tea and coffee, and lunch is also included.

The day runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm, please arrive from 9.30am to start promptly at 10.00am.
